Bush White House Tied to MZM

From Holden:

I see that Josh Marshall noted today’s WaPo report that the Dukester’s landlord, MZM Inc., just lost a major Pentagon contract.

But how did he miss this bit tying the White House to the troubled defense contractor?

Government procurement records show that MZM, which Wade started in 1993, did not report any revenue from prime contract awards until 2003. Most of its revenue has come from the agreement the Pentagon just cut off. But over the past three years it was also awarded several contracts, worth more than $600,000, by the Executive Office of the President. They include a $140,000 deal for office furniture in 2002 and several for unspecified “intelligence services.”

A White House spokeswoman declined to comment.

I’m sure its perfectly normal for the White House to buy $140,000 worth of furniture from a defense contractor, right?
