Feinstein Conflict Allegations ‘Aren’t Going Away,’ Watchdogs Say — 05/08/2007

Sen. Dianne Feinstein may have had as much of a financial interest in two defense contractors as her husband who controlled them, according to California law.The state’s “community property law” could be relevant at a time when the senior Democratic senator from California is facing allegations of a conflict of interest and growing calls for an inquiry.

Feinstein stepped down late last year from the Senate Appropriations Committee’s subcommittee on military construction (MILCON) after five years on the panel. The subcommittee was charged with reviewing construction projects, some of which were awarded to the Perini and URS firms owned by Feinstein’s husband, Richard Blum.
