Senator Dianne Feinstein voted for appropriations worth billions to her husband's firms

Original post made by Robin on Jan 27, 2007

In her annual Public Financial Disclosure Reports, Feinstein records a sizeable family income from large investments in Perini, which is based in Framingham, Mass., and in URS, headquartered in San Francisco. But she has not publicly acknowledged the conflict of interest between her job as a congressional appropriator and her husband's longtime control of Perini and URS—and that omission has called her ethical standards into question, say the experts."

Here's the source of the preceeding excerpt:

And here's more about Feinstein's growing net worth:

"In 2003, Feinstein was ranked the fifth wealthiest senator, with an estimated net worth of $26 million. By 2005 her net worth had increased to between $43 million and $99 million dollars."

I wonder when Dianne's 2006 Public Financial Disclosure Report arrives for public scrutiny.
