Mike Turner - The Miami Valley's King of Earmarks

Posted by DarthDilbert at 4/27/2009 03:30:00 PM

"The reality is, if it’s not spent in this district it gets spent in someone else's," said U.S. Rep. Mike Turner, R-Centerville.

The Miami Valley, which is represented entirely by Republicans, has two congressmen — Austria and Rep. John Boehner, R-West Chester — who didn’t request a single earmark. But it also has Turner, who requested 48 totaling about $147 million.

Is anyone slated to run against him?
