Obey Retirement Makes Retiring Moran Even More Urgent

Rep. David Obey (D-Wisconsin), chair of the House Appropriations Committee, announced his retirement. While Obey’s policy priorities may be nothing to write home about, he is, at least, an ethical Member, and fought for restraint on earmarks.

The Washington Post’s Virginia Politics Blog is reporting on the close ties of Moran with Rep. Norm Dicks (D-Washington), Obey’s likely successor.

Not only are Moran and Dicks friends, they’re both embroiled in the PMA Group pay-to-play scandal.

With Obey gone, Moran and Dicks will have an unfettered hand to spend our tax dollars on pork barrel projects for all of their contributors.
