The Earmark Game

An article published in today’s Roll Call, exposes the politics that earmarks play in Congress.

The article cites a letter from Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Chairwoman Carolyn Cheeks Kilpatrick (D-MI) who explicitly states, “Inherently, we understand that this earmark process is not equitable… There are a few examples of where your help could significantly assist a few members in highly contested races.”

In February, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) released a list of 29 members that are potentially vulnerable, not surprisingly, 20 of those members received airdropped earmarks in the omnibus appropriations bill. 

This letter appears to request taxpayer dollars to aid in political campaigns, which is improper and possibly illegal.  The earmark distribution process must be investigated to ensure that no federal laws are being broken.
