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.
