There was a follow-up article today, by opinion writer Marc A Theissen. He noted that last week the second-ranking House Democrat, Rep. Steny Hoyer (D-MD), noted:
The issue on contracting ought to be on the merits of the contractors’ bid and capabilities. I think there are some serious questions as to what implications there are if somehow we consider political implications in the context of awarding contracts.Representative Steny Hoyer is correct.
