Earlier this week, the Rock Hill Herald from South Carolina published a story on Congressman James Clyburn's (D-S.C.) numerous monuments bearing his name across the 6th district of South Carolina.
Clyburn's name is adorned on 14 seperate buildings, monuments, and roadways ranging from the James E. Clyburn Golf Center to the James E. Clyburn Intermodal Transportation Center, some of which were funded by federal tax dollars. Hardly a prudent use of taxpayer dollars to say the least.
However, Mr. Clyburn has some work to do if he wants to gather as many namesakes as Senator Robert Byrd (D-WV), who has an amazing 34 monuments, roads, bridges, and buildings across West Virginia named after himself.
Pretty impressive? Or pretty ridiculous?
