FOXNews.com - Obama Administration Steers Lucrative No-Bid Contract for Afghan Work to Dem Donor: "Despite President Obama's long history of criticizing the Bush administration for 'sweetheart deals' with favored contractors, the Obama administration this month awarded a $25 million federal contract for work in Afghanistan to a company owned by a Democratic campaign contributor without entertaining competitive bids, Fox News has learned.
The contract, awarded on Jan. 4 to Checchi & Company Consulting, Inc., a Washington-based firm owned by economist and Democratic donor Vincent V. Checchi, will pay the firm $24,673,427 to provide 'rule of law stabilization services' in war-torn Afghanistan."
