CREW files FEC complaint against defense contractor
AP report: A congressional watchdog group filed a complaint Tuesday with the Federal Election Commission against a defense contractor whose dealings with Rep. Randy "Duke" Cunningham are the subject of a federal investigation.
Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington, or CREW, called for the commission to investigate MZM Inc., MZM President Mitchell Wade and the company's political action committee over possible illegal campaign contributions.
A message left at MZM's main offices in Washington, D.C., wasn't returned.
CREW accused MZM and Wade of forcing company employees to donate money to the company PAC in 2002, citing a report Tuesday in The San Diego Union-Tribune. One employee described being told to write a check in the company's Washington headquarters while the unnamed recipient stood nearby, according to the newspaper report. -- AP Wire | 06/21/2005 | Watchdog group files FEC complaint against defense contractor
