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.
