PORK BAR­REL PO­LICE IN AC­TION

The Washington Times Weekly - - Politics -

Among law­mak­ers seek­ing fa­vors for their own home dis­tricts, there has to be the worst of the worst. So says Cit­i­zens Against Gov­ern­ment Waste. The non­par­ti­san watch­dog has re­vealed its six nom­i­nees for “2013 Porker of the Year,” who all hap­pen to be Democrats.

Like Rep. Earl Blu­me­nauer of Oregon who spon­sored the Up­date Act of 2013, which would in­crease the fed­eral gas tax. Or Reps. Donna Ed­wards of Mary­land and Ed­die Ber­nice John­son of Texas for co-sponsoring the Apollo Lu­nar Land­ing Legacy Act, which would es­tab­lish the Apollo Lu­nar Land­ing Sites Na­tional His­toric Park on the Moon.

Pork bar­rel watch­ers can cast their bal­lots for “the most reprehensible porker” through Feb. 5 here: Cagw. org.
