Porkland Security: Installment No. 27

Roll Call has a nice item on the latest attempt by a member of Congress to use homeland security money as a party favor:

“House Homeland Security Chairman Bennie Thompson (D-Miss.) is seeking earmarks worth millions of dollars for homeland security projects at the small Mississippi college that he attended, though the school could not explain what the earmarks are for and does not yet appear to have the capacity to provide the services that Thompson wants to fund.”
