McCaskill Complains to Pentagon About Bad Contracts

Sen. Claire McCaskill says the Pentagon has done little to collect at least $100 million dollars in overcharges paid to a corrupt defense contractor.
McCaskill and Maine Senator Susan Collins have sent a letter to Defense Secretary Robert Gates, according to the New York Times.
The letter also complains that the Army "had almost completely failed to move away from the monopolistic nature of the logistics contract that has paid the contractor."

McCaskill chairs a contracting oversight subcommittee, under the Homeland Security Committee.
