This is pure corruption! Each of the mentioned officials should be investigated and charged with corruption. The level of ethics in politics is so low, they should not be allowed to control anything.

Why does everyone care about a little piece of land in Southwest Florida (which by the way is GRIDLOCK if you ever drive in the area) while our troops are still in harms way.

There are so many more pressing issues in our daily life. Federal dollars does nothing but pump money into the local market vs. it going somewhere else. So the bias is clear until it effects people directly then a sudden change of heart occurs.

The enviromentalist would rather save an owl or wetlands vs, our soldiers. Give it a break people!
