  •  Yup very interesting, back in 1976 (6+ / 0-)

    Let's just say the son of a Bechtel guy tried to rape a girl at gunpoint.  I got involved. A fight started. A shot was fired.  A SWAT team came and thankfully did not arrest me.  But the guy's father's lawyers made it impossible to prosecute.  Long story. This is the short version.

    Daily Kos an oasis of truth. Truth that leads to action.

        It started as a pretty vanilla construction and engineering firm a long time back. I want to say it was in the 1890s in Oklahoma or something like that.  I think Reagan and Bush were where they started to get real connections

      My dad worked for Bechtel during that era of transition. I can imagine some of those guys could pull that sort of thing off.
