An Arizona congressman posted this smack on his Web site recently.
So how about it, BSFA? Care to smack back?
Or at least explain why we need $190,000 in salmon research?
Arizona's Sixth District
Congressman Flake Spotlights Egregious Earmark of the Week
$190,000 to the Bering Sea Fishermen’s Association for Salmon Research
MESA, Arizona, May 8 — Republican Congressman Jeff Flake, who represents Arizona’s Sixth District, today highlighted a pork project contained in the omnibus spending bill for fiscal year 2009.
This week’s egregious earmark: $190,000 to the Bering Sea Fishermen’s Association in Anchorage, Alaska, for salmon research.
“Taxpayers are ‘bering’ the brunt of congressional earmarking,” said Flake.
