More on Earmarks and Pork

Not to pick on Senator Clinton anymore then necessary, but here is a classic example of a "pork" earmark. A non-profit conveniently headed by a former aide, who just happens to donate a lot to her campaign, gets a no-bid earmark contract. The bill hasn't passed yet, but the earmark is in it. Think about 100 Senators and 435 House Members doing the same thing and it adds up pretty quick. See Hillary donor gets $2.6 million earmark in Omnibus bill, delivery in 30 days
