CREW: Rep. Doolittle pays wife $105,000 cut on campaign contributions this year so far!
Payment to wife's firm continue to eat up Rep. Doolittle's campaign funds
17 October 2007 - http://www.citizensforethics.org/node/30298

Reporters are scouring the Federal Elections Commission reports filed by candidates on October 15th. Seems that the most corrupt members of Congress named in Beyond DeLay are providing some interesting information.

For example, the Politico reported that Rep. John Doolittle is still spending money on his wife's firm. She does fundraising for her husband -- and Doolittle's wife's business was raided by the FBI earlier this year.

Rep. John Doolittle (R-Calif.), who is under investigation by the Justice Dept., paid his wife another $45,000 last quarter for fundraising work, according to his latest FEC report.

John T. Doolittle for Congress paid $45,000 to Sierra Dominion Financial Solutions Inc., Julie Doolittle's firm, on July 9, the campaign committee's filing with the Federal Election Commission shows. Julie Doolittle was paid for "fundraising services."

Julie Doolittle was paid slightly more than $60,000 by her husband's campaign from Jan. 1 to June 30, and when combined with the last quarter, has earned more than $105,000 so far this year. ......
