WASHINGTON — A company owned by a nephew of Rep. John Murtha received $4 million from the Defense Department last year for engineering and warehouse services, The Washington Post reported Tuesday.
Murtha, D-Pa., is chairman of the House Appropriations defense subcommittee.
Murtech Inc., based on Glen Burnie, Md., is owned by the congressman’s nephew Robert C. Murtha Jr., who told the Post the company provides “necessary logistical support” to Pentagon testing programs, “and that’s about as far as I feel comfortable going.”
The Post reported that the Pentagon rewarded contracts to Murtech without competition.
