Kaptur votes against investigating her donations

In case you missed it, Marcy voted against HR 425 which called for an investigation into the donations the PMA Group gave to members of Congress and the earmarks the cleints received. Of course for those of you who need a reminder, Marcy's largest donor last election cycle was the PMA Group. 25 Democrats supported the resolution.

ID'd specific earmarks.

“If clients of a lobbying firm currently under federal investigation are receiving earmarks in it, this bill has not received adequate scrutiny,” said Flake.

Flake also has an Opt-Ed in the New York Times:

More info comes out on the shady acts of Kaptur's largest contributor-more questions

More is being reported on Marcy Kaptur's largest donor last year, the lobbyist group PMA. There are some very shady campaign finance/lobbying reporting going on as reported by the Washington Post. This is potentially could be as big as Tom Noe or Jack Abramoff and you know how many people they brought down in 06. Has the Blade run any reports on this? I may have missed it.
