Rep. Goode Says He’s Clean, Despite MZM Money

Call off the dogs!

Rep. Virgil Goode (R-VA) — “Representative A” in Mitchell Wade’s plea agreement — issued a statement today saying he has done nothing wrong and is not hiring a lawyer. He also said neither he nor his staff have ever been contacted by the Feds.

In Wade’s plea two weeks ago, the crooked contractor idenified Goode as a recipient of illegal campaign contributions from his company, MZM. Wade also pegged Rep. Katherine Harris (R-FL) — “Representative B” — for the same.

Unlike Goode, Harris lawyered up last week, as fans will recall, hiring ace campaign finance shark Ben Ginsberg. (More on Ginsberg’s colorful history later.)
