A DoJ Mea Culpa and a Contractor’s Drug-Running Past
The Justice Department has issued another mea culpa in the Alaska corruption probe that snared former Sen. Ted Stevens. Now, two Alaska lawmakers will almost certainly be released from prison because their convictions were tainted by prosecutors’ failure to disclose information to the defense, reports the Anchorage Daily News. Similar misconduct resulted in the dismissal of Stevens’ conviction.
Also, the Washington Post digs up some dirt on the family that founded two Pennsylvania-based defense firms closely tied to Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) and under federal investigation. According to the Post, one of the current owners used to be a drug-runner, and his uncle—the founder—says he was tricked into selling the business to his nephews.
