Members with Undisclosed Earmarks Will Still Get Their Goodies

The Hill reports that Members of Congress who failed to disclose their earmark requests as required by new rules in the House will still get their goodies.

Members who failed to disclose their earmarks as required by the April 4 deadline should have them rejected out of hand. But Congress makes the rules, and Congress can break the rules.

Wash​ing​ton​Watch​.com compiled a state‐​by‐​state list of links to earmark requests recently. Because Members of Congress published their requests in different formats, information about all the earmarks that have been requested is still rather obscure.
