The Pork Barrel

A Newsweek investigation turned up dozens of letters from politicians with an insatiable taste for pork. These are their scraps.

Rep. Ken Calvert, R-CA: Representative Calvert writes in support of the Riverside County Transportation Commission (and Cities of Corona and Riverside)’s application for a TIGER grant. Calvert estimates that the project, which will improve roads and rails, will create 1,250 jobs and spur $161.8 million in economic activity, for a price of $38.1 million to the federal government.
