Norm Dicks has been in the House of Representatives for 35 years. During those years, he became famous for his insider deal making and bringing home the bacon to not only his district but also his family. But despite years of whispers of corruption and profiteering, he always seemed to skate past accountability.
Scandals surrounding Norm Dicks are long, and deep. However, it was a Freedom on Information request by Doug Cloud, involving FBI files from the lobbyist PMA Group that finally caused Dicks to step aside.
