Far Left Senator’s Husband to Earn $1 Billion in Government Contracts

One of the most liberal Senators in Washington is California’s Dianne Feinstein. Why, she cares about the little guy, you know? But while she has spent decades dealing with insider info, it seems her husband has also benefitted quite a lot from his wife’s close ties to government. Now we find that Feinstein’s husband stands to earn a cool one BILLION dollars in profits from government contracts he was just *accidentally* awarded. Yes, I meant to write one BILLION.

While Sen. DiFi lectures the rest of us about the evils of the one percent it seems that she and her husband have made a killing off we the tax payers and put herself in the upper one percent OF the one percent!

The US Postal Service plans to sell 56 buildings — so it can lease space more expensively — and the real estate company of the California senator’s husband, Richard Blum, is set to pocket about $1 billion in commissions.

Blum’s company, CBRE, was selected in March 2011 as the sole real estate agent on sales expected to fetch $19 billion. Most voters didn’t notice that Blum is a member of CBRE’s board and served as chairman from 2001 to 2014.

This feat of federal spousal support was ignored by the media after Feinstein’s office said the senator, whose wealth is pegged at $70 million, had nothing to do with the USPS decisions.

Yeah, it must be nice to be in government where you can make yourself filthy rich off government contracts and insider information.
