More on DeLay and Cunningham

From the San Diego Tribune:

PerfectWave, which specializes in acoustical technology, won more than
$40 in federal contracts between 2003 and 2005, according
to congressional budget reports. Meanwhile, it donated money to DeLay
and other key Republicans overseeing the appropriations process in
Congress, including Rep. Jerry Lewis of Redlands, who is chairman of
the Appropriations Committee, and Rep. John T. Doolittle, a committee
member who represents a district in the Sierra foothills near

The money was not requested by the Navy but was
instead inserted by the Appropriations Committee as part of the
closed-door congressional earmarking process.

Hm, the money was not requested, but it was earmarked. DeLay and Cunningham each get donations to their PACs and PerfectWave comes from literally nowhere (the company was founded in 2002) to get $40 million in contracts.
