Below is a video of Ken Calvert on his support of the 241 Toll Road. Nevermind that his reputation is on the line. Nevermind that he worked to garner earmarks (see Of Pork and Ken, Feb. 16 2006) so that taxpayer money could be spent on “environmental studies” for the toll roads – millions upon millions of taxpayer dollars, despite the Transportation Corridor Agencies' continual assurances that no taxpayer money will go to the CONSTRUCTION of the toll road – a legally defensible claim. But, just like the road itself, wouldn't we rather have something that was actually substantial, something proper and appropriate, rather than just something that's … legally defensible?
Watch the congressman speak below the fold.
