Husband of Dem Senator Dianne Feinstein to Make 1 Billion Off Government Deal
Democrats love to talk about income inequality. You know why? They wrote the book on it.
I wonder how Dianne Feinstein’s husband got this sweet deal?
Senator’s husband stands to profit big from government deal
Ever wonder how lowly paid lawmakers leave office filthy rich?
Sen. Dianne Feinstein is showing how it’s done.
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.
Elizabeth Warren is right when she says the game is rigged.
She just doesn’t mention that it’s her party that does all the rigging.
