Maybe they should have given him money

Today's Washington Post reports that Rep. Charles Taylor (R-NC) is holding up a $10 million appropriation to purchase land in Pennsylvania to establish a memorial site to commemorate the heroic actions of passengers on board United Airlines Flight 93. Relatives of the passengers who perished in that flight after fighting terrorists for control of the airplane are in Washington today to lobby for the funding.

 

You might recall that this is the very same Rep. Taylor who helped Jack Abramoff's clients the Saginaw Chippewa of Michigan tribe secure a $3 million appropriation to build a school after Abramoff's associates took Taylor to lunch and provided $6,000 in campaign contributions.

 

I'll let you decide what to think of this.
