So what of Minnesota's delegation? The Pig's Book searchable database on House members
(Senate will come later) shows the following:
District 1: Tim Walz (DFL)
13 earmarks worth $9.7 million
Lowlight:$200,000 for soybean genomics
District 2: John Kline (GOP)
District 3: Erik Paulsen (GOP)
9 earmarks worth $7.5 million
Lowlight: The fact that Paulsen would seek earmarks at all
District 4: Betty McCollum (DFL)
14 earmarks worth $8.7 million
Lowlight:$200,000 for a neighborhood development center
District 5: Keith Ellison (DFL)
18 earmarks worth $23 million
Lowlight:$150,000 to refurbish the Coe Mansion (whatever that is)
District 6: Michele Bachmann (GOP)
District 7: Collin Peterson (DFL)
10 earmarks worth $13.7 million
Lowlight:$550,000 for the Center for Rural Entrepreneurial Studies.
Aren't entrepreneurs folks who create wealth WITHOUT government help?
District 8: Jimmy Bikeshorts Oberstar (DFL)
33 earmarks worth over $72 million
Lowlight: Oberstar's blatant disregard for America's future as evidenced by his relentless efforts to waste billions on his pet pork projects. This guy has no shame.
