    Earmark Critic Pete Sessions Steered Money To Aide, Blimp

    Politico:

    Rep. Pete Sessions -- the chief of the Republicans' campaign arm in the House -- says on his website that earmarks have become "a symbol of a broken Washington to the American people."

    Yet in 2008, Sessions himself steered a $1.6 million earmark for dirigible research to an Illinois company whose president acknowledges having no experience in government contracting, let alone in building blimps.

    :oops: This should be in Politics
