Lobbying Firm Raided

A report on Monday from abcnews.com indicates that federal investigators raided the offices of the PMA group, one of the largest defense lobbying firms in Washington DC. The raid took place as part of an ongoing investigation into potentially improper campaign contributions.

 

The firm is best known for its ties to Congressman John Murtha (D-Pa), who heads the House subcommittee on defense spending. Murtha has received campaign contributions from many of PMA’s executives and clients during his time in Congress.
