But there is a reward waiting for House members who ignore the wishes and interests of their constituents and vote for Obama’s health care proposals. Congressman Alan Mollohan has had a pesky FBI investigation hanging over his head for a few years. Now, presto, right before the health care vote, it went away. The Justice Department, headed by Attorney General Eric Holder, announced that the FBI was closing the inquiry. Mollohan’s sin? He pushed for earmarks for nonprofit enterprises in his district and then went into a real estate deal in Florida with the head of the company under financial terms that were distinctly favorable to the Congressman. But Mollohan toes the party line and is now getting his unjust reward.

IF this is true it's wrong but Dick Morris is not a credible source.

This is a super stretch, a leap actually.
The group that was behind the probe into Mollohan's finances are conservative (NLPC). The investigation went on for four years and sat silent for all of 2008. Don't you think people aren't entitled to closure if the justice department and the FBI cannot muster enough evidence to prove a law has been broken?
