Kentucky GOP congressman receives “Porker of the Month” award

Symptom of the disease I tell ya. Corruption is everywhere in Washington and the solution to solve the beltway-critter’s cash redistribution efforts is to move power back to the states. Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.) sponsors a bill which would provide federal grants to overseas wildlife protection for lions and cheetahs. Rogers’ daughter likes cats.

So do I, but that’s not the point. From courtesy Sister Toldjah. (If the video below does not work, head right over to to watch.)



Conservation or nepotism? Since 2007 Rogers has been promoting a bill which would provide federal grants to overseas wildlife protection for lions and cheetahs. Surprise! Rogers’ daughter is the grants administrator for the Namibia-based Cheetah Conservation Fund, and has been since—you guessed it—2007.

It looks like this legislation has been floating around the beltway since 2004 or maybe before.

    So much for the "appearance of impropriety".  I hope this ass gets what's coming to him.  We need a public apology at minimum.

    Why do you people hate lions and cheetahs? Because of the barbarism of hunters and Global Warming caused by Halliburton and BP, these noble animals are on the verge of extinction.

    They should use the UN slush fund money.

    Don't we have enough government tools to have a "porker of the day" award?

    My first thought was to feed these poor kitty-cats Congresspeople, but then I realized we'd have to treat the poor kitty-cats for food poising!
