$149M: Inouye Makes Hirono #1 Sponsor of Earmarks in US House for 2010
By Selected News Articles @ 1:36 PM :: 5884 Views :: Energy, Environment, National News, Ethics

From Taxpayers for Common Sense and Center for Responsive Politics 

 

Mazie K. Hirono sponsored or co-sponsored 67 earmarks totaling $149,769,900 in fiscal year 2010 ranking 1st out of 435 representatives.  

 

(This proves that Inouye has been grooming Hirono to look like she’s actually doing something by letting her co-sponsor his earmarks for an entire year now. Remember this? Abercrombie Ranks #1 in Earmarks for 2009. He made for such a wonderful governor, right?)
