A while back, there was a GeekPol entry about how GOP Congressional got more money on average in appropriations than did Democratic districts. One of the conclusions in the report was that it was done without increasing the pork projects to GOP districts. GeekPol was, shall I say, a bit skeptical.

Turns out the skepticism was warranted. TheHill.com reports that GOP legislators have been working behind the scenes to get loads of spending in their own districts. F'rinstance, heretofore obscure Congresscritter Robert Aderholt (R-Norquist's little boy) announced $25 million worth of new pork projects (42 of them) that will go to his district.
