Building An Earmark Industry in the Nation's Capitol
You may have seen those television spots for a law firm that says "if you have a phone, you have a lawyer." In Washington, D.C., there could easily be a spot that says "if you have $500, you can have an earmark."
That spot would be appropriate for TheCapitol.Net, which promises to teach customers everything they need to know about getting earmarks for just $495. National Journal's David Baumann was so impressed with TheCapitol.Net that he made it his lead for a comprehensive analysis of Washington's growing culture of earmarks.
Thanks to Beltway Blogroll's Danny Glover, you can read Baumann's piece here without having to be a National Journal subscriber.
