Legislators funnelling money through "earmarks"
There is a 2nd of two great articles today The Washington Post has put out. The first told of legislators in Washington who funnelled money to projects that they themselves own property close to, thereby likely increasing the value of their own property, of course. Nice, huh? No surprise, right? Our own example, out of Missouri is the one and only Republican Todd Akin, bless his pointy little head and it falls under the first category--funneling money to property near his own.
