Cunnigham Corruption In the White House

Over at TPM Muckraker today's most pressing question is - how did Randy Cunningham's crony and co-conspirator, Mitchell Wade, end up with unprecidented intellegence contracts with the Executive Office of the President? Yeah, that Executive Office - of the President of the United States.

One question in particular stood out: how common is this? Just how many contracts has the White House given out for "intelligence services?"

The answer? Four. And three were to Mitchell Wade's MZM.

And, it looks like the fourth went to an MZM sub-contractor.

What was Mitchell Wade's company doing for the Executive Office and who brought them into the White House?
