I’m not much of taking up media driven causes but this one caught my eye. Anderson Cooper of AC 360 on CNN is “Keeping them Honest” in Washington by seeking to reveal ALL of the earmarks of ALL 435 Members of the US House of Representatives.
I’m taking the bait and I’m challenging everyone here at the Peach Pundit to do likewise. Call your Member of Congress and ask to be sent the list of their earmarks. If they’ve been in a long time, ask for a recap of all the earmarks.
We have 13 Members of Congress representing Georgia. We deserve to know what earmarks they have requested and received. Not all earmarks are bad, but there needs to be A LOT of transparency to the process.
In case you’re not familiar with our Representatives they are: 1) Jack Kingston, R (member of appropriations committee 2) Sanford Bishop, D (member of appropriations committee 3) Lynn Westmoreland, R 4) Hank Johnson, D 5) John Lewis, D 6) Tom Price, R 7) John Linder, R 8] Jim Marshall, D 9) Nathan Deal, R 10) vacant 11) Phil Gingrey, R 12) John Barrow, D 13) David Scott, D
