McCarthy bagged $56 million in earmarks
March 30, 2009
Remember just last week, Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.) labeled his peers who are taking earmarks as bank robbers, and voiced his strong opposition to project funding requests? It turns out that the congressman sponsored $56 million in legislative earmarks in 2008, with $282,000 going to the San Luis Obispo County Sheriff’s Department.
