On the Fact that Former (and Now Deceased) Congressman, Jack Murtha, Was Able to Steer $150 Million in Pure Pork to His District for an Airport that Only Services Three Flights a Day, All of Them from D.C.

In a saner society, folks like this would be shamed and maybe even pilloried (as opposed to what America does; i.e., reelect them).......Too bad for our lack of sanity, huh?

The founders had it right....the house was ment for shop keepers and farmers to spend two years representing their neighbors.....not some shitbag spending 40 in the house.

He was elected in '74 and remained until his death in 2010. So, yeah, the dude was a lifer.
