Earmarks Are Alive and Well

Posted: November 24, 2010 in Sen. Jon Kyl

Sen. Jon Kyl is the gift that keeps on giving or in this case, taking.  According to the Boston Globe, only a few days after Republicans renounced earmarks Sen. Kyl added a $200 million earmark to a bill.  The bill was a proposal to settle claims filed by black farmers and Native American tribes.  Kyl is claiming it isn’t an earmark but it was slipped in to benefit a tribe right here in Arizona–the very definition of an earmark.  This news come from an article in the Boston Globe.
