Feinstein and the Press

How'd this one get a complete pass from the press? I did a googlenews search and only got 7 hits, and they were mostly blogs. I found the link at Of Arms and the Law. If this were a republican...
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., has abruptly walked away from her responsibilities with the Senate Military Construction Appropriations Subcommittee after a report linked her votes to the financial well-being of her husband's companies, which received billions of dollars worth of military construction contracts she approved.

As reported in Metroactive, an online report from the Silicon Valley, Feinstein's resignation followed six years of subcommittee work during which time her alleged conflict of interest stemmed from her husband Richard C. Blum's ownership of Perini Corp. and URS Corp.

Feinstein, chairman and ranking member of the subcommittee, regularly reviewed and accepted contracts from her husband's companies for not only construction work for military bases, but also addressing "quality of life" issues for the veterans of the United States military services.
What? No investigation? Funny, there's more evidence of corruption here than with the firing of the Attorneys by the Bush administration. Why so very little (and I mean none) coverage of this in the MSM, especially the big names?
