$600M Army contract for Feinstein's husband's firm

The story is more than a year and a half old, but is worth another look in light of DiFi's fawning over Condi Rice.

URS Corp., a San Francisco planning and engineering firm partially owned by California Sen. Dianne Feinstein's husband, landed an Army contract Monday worth up to $600 million.
The award to help with troop mobilization, weapons systems training and anti-terrorism efforts is the latest in a string of plum defense jobs snared by URS. In February, the firm won an army engineering and logistics contract that could bring in $3.1 billion during the next eight years.

While we are raking Armstrong Williams and Maggie Gallagher across the coals, let's keep in mind that there are lots of less blatant forms of bribery out there.
