Ackerman Corruption?

The Daily News has an interesting story on ethics violations by Congressman Ackerman in his relations with the Xenonics company:

As outlined in today’s Daily News, he 1) cleared a $100,000 profit on the sale of stock in a defense contracting company and 2) hosted a meeting in his House office between the firm, which was trying to sell its technology, and Israeli government officials, who were considering buying.

Plain-as-day House ethics rules prohibit using a congressional office for a commercial purpose. So questions must be asked – and they are doubly necessary because Ackerman has stonewalled inquiries into the details of his killing on Xenonics stock and his exertions on the company’s behalf.
