Moran Notes Tiahrt’s Earmark Reputation

As the August Primaries near, the war of words between the two heavy weight Kansas Republicans vying for the Senate seat being vacated by Sam Brownback, is starting to heat up.

Big First District Kansas Congressman Jerry Moran’s office made it a point to “point out” to voters that not one of the four candidates running for Congressman Tiahrt’s 4th Congressional District seat agree with the Wichita politician’s record when it comes to “earmarks”.

Moran spokesperson Dan Conston said, “As an appropriator, Todd Tiahrt has long championed some of the most egregious wasteful earmarks, including $400,000 for indoor tennis courts and voting against removing earmarks for Representative John Murtha’s “airport for nobody”.

Conston went on to say, “When even the candidates looking to replace Todd believe his signature issue of earmarks is wasteful spending that must be stopped, it’s clear Todd Tiahrt is part of Washington’s spending problem.”
