I've just been looking through some of the letters from members of Congress requesting funds or supporting projects requesting funds from the "failed" stimulus program. Cognitive dissonance anyone? The Center for Public Integrity has made available letters (in a post on its website) requesting those funds.
The very least these folks could do is have an ounce of integrity, and I am including those Republicans who are running for Congress too. If the shit works, and brings or saves jobs in your district, be honest about that. It's not that difficult.
