Cronyism Takes a Ride on the Gravy Train

Need favors? Have an extra $2,000 or $5,000 lying around? Enjoy long train rides and conversations about backwards public policy?

If you answered yes, then you can ride on Congressman Joe Barton’s Gravy Train!

That’s right ladies and gentlemen, Joe Barton is fighting corruption by taking PACs and individuals money and talking to them about policy that may appear in the Energy and Commerce committee next year.

If that isn’t enticing enough for you to join Barton’s joy ride from Fort Worth to San Antonio, then maybe you should know that there will be a Saturday brunch for you to continue to schmooze with the bought and sold Barton. And what's a two day lobbying adventure after brunch some cocktails and gambling?

Have no fear, this ride is completely anonymous, because what good is lobbying a sitting committee chair, when they can find out who you are (Abramoff?).

For love of god… give money to David Harris in Congressional District 6. If the Republican leadership wants to lie about wanting reform, at least they can have the courtesy of NOT being so flagrant
