US - Rep. Jeff Flake (R.-Ariz.) continues to uncover earmarks right and left. This week he&#39;s shining light on a pork project contained in the Energy and Water appropriations bill (H.R. 2419) for fiscal year 2006. The project? -- $160,000 for poultry litter composting in West Virginia. &quot;Maybe this is what Representative Jim Moran had in mind when he said that, if he becomes Appropriations Chairman, he&#39;ll earmark the @#$&% out of it,&quot; said Flake. Earlier this month, Moran promised supporters that if the Democrats win the majority in the House of Representatives this November, he&#39;d be sure to bring home the bacon. <i>Source: Human Events Online</i>
