Remember Ernest Istook?
He's one of the guy's that represents me in D.C.
He's the morman from Texas that screwed a bunch of his fellow republicans out of money for their state projects last year because he doesn't like trains. He really doesn't like trains. As chairman of the House Transportation Appropriations Committee he hemmed and hawed over whether to give California the money it needed to extend light rail lines in LA. He didn't wanna, didn't wanna, didn't wanna, did. Two days later got a bunch a money from those west coasters for his re-election campaign.
We don't have to worry about him wielding all that power this term as the Republicans have him sitting in the naughty chair, VICE-chairman of the Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee.
I wonder how he likes reading quotes like this, "The leadership also stripped Rep. Ernest Istook (R-Okla.) of his cardinal status as punishment for attempting last year to dump transportation projects in 21 GOP congressional districts."
