Queen Of Pork

It isn't often South Dakota comes in first in anything but South Dakota's own Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has been crowned the queen of pork by the Citizens Against Government Waste in their Energy and Water category.
The top five porkers for Energy and Water are Rep. Stephanie Herseth (D-S.D.) with $32.3 million; Rep. Tim Walz (D-Minn.) with $28.5 million; House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-Wis.) with $27.62 million; House Energy and Water Development Appropriations Subcommittee Ranking Member David Hobson (R-Ohio) with $27.6 million; and Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) with $25 million.
Way to make us proud Stephanie, first you vote to promote spying on us by changing your vote after collecting $6000 in contributions from the telcom's that now have immunity and now this.

Note: I haven't found a searchable breakdown (there is a pdf file) of what they have as pork attributed to Herseth Sandlin but I'd bet that Lewis and Clark is a big part of it.
