Mollohan's Bid to Allay Conflict of Interest Criticism Falters
(CNSNews.com) - "Rep. Alan Mollohan (D-W.Va.), the new chairman of the panel that determines the budget of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, has promised to recuse himself from matters related to the FBI while he remains under FBI investigation, but the attempt to fend off criticism of his appointment appeared to have backfired.

The FBI is examining charges that Mollohan illegally benefited from distribution of federal funds.

On Wednesday, Mollohan was selected to head the House Appropriations Committee's subcommittee for Science, State, Justice, Commerce and Related Agencies, which oversees the Department of Justice, including the FBI."


"As Cybercast News Service previously reported, documents obtained by the NLPC show that Mollohan and his wife, Barbara, reported under $550,000 in assets in 2000. That figure soared to more than $8 million just five years later.

On April 10, 2006, the NLPC accused him of violating more than 250 House ethics rules. Eleven days later, Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) - then minority leader - announced that Mollohan would step down from the chamber's ethics committee while defending himself against the allegations.

Mollohan filed two dozen corrections to his past six annual financial disclosure forms on June 13, asserting that his accountant had uncovered several unintentional errors. He attributed his substantial rise in assets to prudent real-estate investments."

Could I get the name of his real-estate advisor? Please?
