Remember back when Democrat Congressman Jim Moran, U.S. Representative for Virginia’s 8th congressional district gave an interview where he said that Congress is underpaid at $174,000 a year and needs a raise because Americans need to understand that Congress is“the board of directors for the largest economic entity in the world”?

Well, check out what the “board of directors” has been up to.

According to watchdog groups Legistorm and CREW — Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington — a total of 297 members of Congress have earmarked. $3,776,001,807 for organizations that are connected directly to them or to their family members.

For just one example of how this works, check out this research into the conflicts of interest and crony dealings of Dem. Rep. Rosa DeLaurohere — and she’s just one example.
