Hoyer: PMA Issue "Ought To Be Looked At"

The FBI is currently investigating whether PMA linked campaign contributions to earmarks. The move for a congressional probe -- led by Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) -- gained momentum last week when Rep. Pete Visclosky (D-IN) acknowledged that he had been subpoenaed in the federal investigation. Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) -- a close Pelosi ally with whom Hoyer has clashed in the past -- has also been the subject of scrutiny for his close ties to the lobby firm.
