Investigation

Along with six other members of a the House Committee on Appropriations subcommittee on defense, which controls Pentagon spending, Tiahrt fell under scrutiny by ethics investigators in fall 2009. Two separate ethics offices are examining the seven lawmakers who helped steer federal funds to clients of the PMA Group. The lawmakers under scrutiny, John P. Murtha (D-Penn.), Pete Visclosky (D-Ind.), Jim Moran (D-Va.), Norm Dicks (D-Wash.), Marcy Kaptur (D-Ohio) , Bill Young (R-Fla.) and Tiahrt, also received campaign contributions from the firm and its clients.[1]
