Greene's DC Ad: Investigate Meek Over Earmark Scandal (VIDEO)


As TPMmuckraker previously reported, Meek is under scrutiny for seeking earmarks for developer Dennis Stackhouse. Stackhouse is now facing fraud charges over a proposed Miami biopharmaceutical complex. According to the Miami Herald, Stackhouse gave a top Meek staffer $13,000 in 2003 for a down payment on a home, and paid Meek's mother, former congresswoman Carrie Meek, $90,000 for consulting services.

"Congress does nothing and the Meek scandal grows," the ad says.
