Campaign Money Watch released a new report today showing that all of Rep. Dan Lungren’s (R-Calif.) 2010 earmark requests were for those who contributed campaign cash to his campaign.
“Just a few weeks ago in committee, Rep. Lungren voted against legislation that would sever the ties between special interest money and members of Congress,” said David Donnelly, director of Campaign Money Watch. “In Dan Lungren’s world, he sees no problem with donors who give him money and his efforts to get them taxpayer-funded earmarks. This ‘give-to-get’ scheme may benefit him and his special interest donors, but it just deepens the public’s cynicism about how Washington works well for big money players but poorly for the rest of us.”
