PORKBUSTERS UPDATE: University Offers Credit for 'How to Get an Earmark' Course

The school is George Mason University in Fairfax, Va., which has a reputation as a generally conservative school in the ocea of liberal academia, so it is perhaps surprising to see the institution granting academic credit for a course in how to get an earmark.

The course is part of TheCapitol.Net's "non-partisan training and publications that show how Washington works." Allen G. Merten is GMU's President. If you would like to ask him why his university is granting academic credit for a course that teaches how to rip off taxpayers, email him at: amerten@gmu.edu.

This is TheCapitol.Net's second appearance on Tapscott's Copy Desk.
