Dianne Goldman Berman Feinstein was an American politician and United States senator from California from 1992 until her death in 2023.
With her close ties to the military-industrial complex,she has been referred to as "a woman whose love of power and contempt for the US constitution knows no bounds," benefiting financially immensely in the process.
Feinstein was elected to the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1969. During her tenure on the Board of Supervisors, she unsuccessfully ran for mayor of San Francisco twice. Feinstein was elected president of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 1978.
On January 20, 1980, her third marriage was to the billionaire financier Richard C. Blum. Blum and Feinstein were key players in the San Francisco Democratic Party political machine. The marriage created a family economic and political alliance that in a little over a decade made them to become the top power couple in the state of California with a place on the national and world stages. Blum generously financed Feinstein's campaigns. Both Blum and Feinstein were members of the Council on Foreign Relations. Blum was trustee of and part of the power structure of the Brookings Institute.
Feinstein made an unsuccessful bid for governor of California in 1990. She won the Democratic nomination, but lost the general election to U.S. Senator Pete Wilson, who resigned from the Senate to assume the governorship. The Feinstein failed campaign failed to disclose a series of bank loans arranged by Blum that amounted to at least $2.9 million. Her campaign was fined a total of $190,000 by California’s state watchdog agency, the largest such cash settlement in state history, for an "outrageous case of gross negligence: .
- A review of the senator’s first two years in office found that Feinstein supported several positions that benefited Blum, his wealthy clients and their investments. She was a vocal proponent of increased trade with China while Blum’s firm was planning a major investment there. She also voted for appropriations bills that provided more than $100 million a year in federal funds to three companies in which her husband is a substantial investor."
She and her husband have benefited immensely from their connections to government contracts and insider deals. For example, Blum received a contract to oversee the sale of post offices in California, despite an obvious conflict of interest.
Feinstein also made a name for herself as an advocate for the military-industrial complex. As chairperson of the Senate’s Military Construction Appropriations subcommittee from 2001-2007, Feinstein supervised and supported the appropriation of over $1.5 billion for two military contractors, URS Corporation and Perini Corporation, both companies that Blum had a controlling interest in. Blum later sold URS for a reported personal profit of $57 million. When Feinstein’s actions were exposed in early 2007, she abruptly quit her post on this subcommittee.
