Colorado Republican Congressman Doug Lamborn has come out strong this year against earmarks. He joined the Tea Party caucus dedicated to fighting government waste and he enthusiastically signed onto the GOP House pledge against earmarking, or the practice of tacking on projects to legislation in order to deliver tax money to favored constituencies and causes. Lamborn wrote an editorial for his hometown Colorado Springs Gazette
against earmarks last Saturday, a feel good Thanksgiving treat for the Gazette's conservative readers.
He left out the fact that he has been earmark crazy
since he arrived in Washington in 2007.
