More on Ryun's sweet "Safe House"

Following up on the sweetheart deal reported yesterday TPM Muckraker reports that the value of the house Ryun bought should have risen $100,000, but he actually bought it for $19,000 less than the Delay connected lobbying group had paid for it.

Ryun may have been essentially given the house, since there's no evidence that the house was ever listed on the market. No competitive bidding to drive the price up, and Ryun walks away with an extra $100,000 in his bank account.

Residents of his district are encouraged to call his office (202-225-6601) and ask for information about the deal.
