The Diaz-Balart Brothers

Republican Representatives Mario and Lincoln Diaz-Balart are in quite a fight in South Florida. And Sunday’s Miami Herald story is not going to make things any easier for them:

Congressman Lincoln Diaz-Balart has procured millions in federal funding to benefit a small Miami-Dade defense-contracting group that has donated tens of thousands of dollars to his political campaign and that of his brother, fellow U.S. Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart.

Medley contractors Locust USA and Mark Two Engineering began contributing to the Diaz-Balarts’ campaigns and political action committees in 2001, the year Locust secured its first small defense contract. Through this year, those contributions totaled more than $67,000.

Locust was awarded $20.8 million in Pentagon research and development contracts from 2001-2007, federal contracting records show.

At least 44 percent, $9.2 million, came through Congressional earmarks sponsored by Lincoln Diaz-Balart, The Miami Herald found. The largest — $3.7 million — came in 2006.

A recent DailyKos commissioned poll put Joe Garcia within 4 points of unseating Mario Diaz-Balart. And this story can only help.

If you have not already, sign-up for Joe Garcia’s campaign. He could use your help.
