Congressional Democrats May Pick Someone Else to Chair Appropriations Committee

On Tuesday, U.S. Congressional candidate Doug Cloud made the following statement in response to Democrat opposition to Norm Dicks's bid to become Chair of the House Appropriations Committee:

"It's a canary in the coal mine. Some Democrats think Dicks, possibly facing serious corruption charges, is not fit to chair this important position. It doesn't matter anyway; Dicks's position in Congress will mean nothing when the Republicans win the majority.

"He has also refused to respond to our request for the release of his FBI files (relating to the PMA scandal). What is he hiding? He's clearly on the defensive; he can't address any of our questions."

Congressman Norm Dicks was not able to comment about House Democrats possibly choosing Congressman Chaka Fattah (D-PA) as the first African American to head the committee.

Dicks will be in the spotlight this week as the recipient of over $500,000 in tainted contributions from earmark hustler Paul Magliocchetti through PMA Group and its clients. Magliocchetti, will enter a plea of guilty in federal court this Friday. According to the Federal Election Commission reports Dicks has spent over $36,000 in campaign money to Brand Law Group for legal services since 2009.
