Sweetheart Deal

Who will protect us from the Federal Government?  As reported by Fox News and under-reported almost everywhere else the Obama administration engages in giving no-bid deals to big donors.  As reported an Ethics group had this to say:

"I think the administration should explain what the decision was based on, and why a no-bid contract was given in this case, particularly given that Mr. Obama came in on a pledge of 'no more no-bid contracts,'" said Melanie Sloan, executive director of Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington. 

"There's really no explanation of why they had to make an exception in this case. And based on the facts before us, it doesn't appear that there was a need for an exception. It's not as if this was something urgently needed today; they couldn't have taken the time to get the bids, and make sure that American people were getting the best value," she added.
