Hayden tarred with the same brush as Goss?

General Michael V. Hayden may have some connections to the same scandal that (probably) brought down his predecessor.

Hayden, shown here in an undated photo:

according to TPM Muckraker:

contracted the services of a top executive at the company at the center of the Cunningham bribery scandal, according to two former employees of the company.

Hayden, President Bush’s pick to replace Porter Goss as head of the CIA, contracted with MZM Inc. for the services of Lt. Gen. James C. King, then a senior vice president of the company, the sources say. MZM was owned and operated by Mitchell Wade, who has admitted to bribing former Rep. Randy “Duke” Cunningham with $1.4 million in money and gifts. Wade has also reportedly told investigators he helped arrange for prostitutes to entertain the disgraced lawmaker, and he continues to cooperate with a federal inquiry into the matter.

Small world, huh?

One Comment

  1. More corruption. We shouldn’t be surprised. Bush has nominated one of his cronies. Here we have a guy in Michael Hayden who doesn’t even understand the Fourth Amendment. He stomps on the rights of ordinary Americans.
