We mentioned in the Daily Muck this morning that the FBI is investigating top Air Force officials for improperly steering a $49 million publicity contract to a buddy. Turns out the buddy has some interesting qualifications.

Ed Shipley is the former Navy man who “won” the contract, even though his bid was $25 million higher than the rest. But he was clearly the best man for the job, as our colleagues at Muckraked.com reveal: from 1988 to 1992, Shipley produced and directed Richard Simmons’ “Sweatin’ to the Oldies” videos.
