...first let me enjoy the feeling of being cool and compensated for a minute...
Ah, that's better.
Anyhoo, it appears that the same contractor that allowed the "Duke" to make a killing on the housing market gave a good chunk of change to help out the "Capital Hill snuggler."
A defense contractor under federal investigation gave Rep. Katherine Harris, a member of the House Homeland Security Committee, about $42,000 during the 2003-04 election cycle.
MZM Inc., a Washington company that does millions of dollars of work for the federal government, has been in the news for its role in a deal with Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham, R-Calif. Cunningham sold a house to MZM founder Mitchell Wade, who lost money on it after putting it back on the market almost immediately.
Harris, R-Sarasota, got $10,000 from the MZM political action committee, and another $32,000 from MZM employees, according to the Center for Responsive Politics, which tracks campaign money.
Granted Harris has had her own extensive construction projects.
