Watchdog group: Probe Blum contract

Dianne Feinstein, California Democrat.
CREW sent the letter in response to a story in last Tuesday's Washington Times, which reported that Richard Blum's firm had received a lucrative contract to sell foreclosed real estate at compensation rates higher than industry norms. Mrs. Feinstein later introduced legislation sought by the agency.
