Murkowski Yet Again Profits In Office
I’ve documented before how Lisa Murkowski profited in office through a land deal in which she increased the value of property by directing a federal earmark to build a short road to the property for several millions of dollars.
Well, she’s done it again. This time by voting for TARP.
Turns out Lisa had substantial investments in several of the companies that benefited the most from TARP.
At the time, the Senator and her family had upwards of $335,000 invested in Wall Street banks and institutions who, in turn, received billions of dollars in bailout funds. Among them was Morgan Stanley. The information is publicly available on Murkowski’s personal financial disclosures.
Remember when public service was all about serving others instead of your bank account?
