"Capitol Crime"

Chitra Ragavan, Chief Legal Correspondent for U.S.News & World Report, has written "Capitol Crime," a detailed piece about MZM, a defense contractor implicated in the Rep. "Duke" Cunningham briberies. "Based on a review of hundreds of pages of court documents, private internal MZM records, and detailed interviews with a dozen key officials, shows how [Mitchell] Wade used his connections on Capitol Hill and inside the Pentagon to gather inside information and turn his company into a moneymaking juggernaut." The article focuses on the corporate side of Congressional corruption; the anatomy of bribery; and the rise and fall of a company built on hand shakes and favors.
