Iowa True Blue: McCain & Des Moines

Excerpted from this post at Iowa True Blue

Earmarks Helped Des Moines Law Enforcement... Senator McCain has railed
against earmarks, dismissing them as pork for the special interests.
But during his trip to Des Moines today, McCain will enjoy the
protection of local law enforcement agencies that protect the people
of Des Moines and Polk County every day, partially with the assistance
of Congressional earmarks. Polk County Department Of Public Safety
Received Earmark To Combat Meth. The Polk County Department of Public
Safety received a $291,000 earmark in Fiscal Year 2008 to intercept
imported meth. The earmark was included in the FY 2008 Consolidated
Appropriations Bill, which McCain skipped the vote on.
