And The Hits Just Keep On Coming

U.S. occupation officials gave a man with a federal fraud conviction control of millions of dollars for Iraqi reconstruction. Now the man is charged with accepting kickbacks to steer contracts to a businessman.

Robert J. Stein Jr., 50, of Fayetteville, N.C., used some of the kickback money to make a restitution payment for his earlier conviction and his wife used some to pay federal taxes, according to a federal affidavit.
The allegations against Bloom and Stein have their roots in audits performed by Inspector General Stuart W. Bowen Jr.

Mitchell said Bowen is working on more than 50 cases involving Iraq reconstruction, and has referred up to a dozen to the Justice Department.

"This is the first case and there will be more," Mitchell said.
