    Sen. McCaskill Requests Probe Into $433M Smallpox Drug Contract

    A Democratic senator called this week for an investigation into a $433 million government contract for a smallpox drug amid questions over the necessity of the drug and the way the contract was approved.
    Sen. Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., who chairs a subcommittee on the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, said there are "serious questions" about the contract, according to the Los Angeles Times.

    I believe this scandal in the making was brought up elsewhere and poo poo'd on as being a non-story.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Good for McCaskill but how many times do Senate investigations do anything?

    But but but those donations are just free speech! It's just a good old-fashioned American businessman exercising his constitutional right to free expression by donating money to someone who just so happened to later award him a cushy multimillion dollar contract.

    One has to wonder how many insiders within the administration own stock in Siga?

    Orrrrr, since it peaked in June (after the deal was made in the spring) at around $14 a share and now sits at $1.71, have they already gotten out?

    People are learning that large government loans lead to the collapse of the company.
