ABC NEWS: Murtha’s Ties To Center Under Scrutiny. “How close is Rep. John P. ‘Jack’ Murtha (D-PA) to the government-funded lab reportedly under federal investigation? Past issues of the lab’s internal newsletter give some insight. . . . The center has received over $250 million in its 10 years; reports say “tens of millions” of those dollars have gone to clients of a lobby firm, PMA Group, with close ties to Murtha and his office. Federal investigators have reviewed documents and interviewed people who have worked at EOC, and the interviews included questions about Murtha as well as another lawmaker.”

The “other lawmaker” is Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-IN).
