Out with the Old...

More reasons that Murtha Must Go:

  • Taxpayers for Common Sense estimates that Murtha has directed $600 million in earmarks to his district in the last four years.
  • Over his 33 years in Congress, many of his earmarks were for projects opposed by the Pentagon and other federal agencies as inefficient or unnecessary
  • The nonprofit Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics, which recently listed Murtha as one of the most corrupt members of Congress
It's clear to me that his waste of government money, his burdening of legislation with unnecessary pork, coupled with his obvious lack of personal accountability--to say nothing of his shady dealings in the ABSCAM scandal--means he should not be representing Pennsylvanians in Congress, and is an embarrassment to America as a whole.
