Payoffs all ’round

leave a comment »

Our Federal government now seems to be run by and for payoffs. Another one:

Sen. Roger Wicker (R-MS), who was appointed to replace Trent Lott, “last year obtained a $6 million earmark for a defense contractor whose executives were among his top campaign contributors” and were represented in the matter by Wicker’s former chief of staff.

I’m still supporting John Edwards, who seems to have this sort of thing directly in his sights for change.
