Link Harvest: Barton Promises to Conduct Useless Investigations If Made Chair of Commerce

Barton promises to investigate the dickens out of the BTOP stimulus program if he wins his fight to become Chair of the Commerce Committee.

First off, how is this any different from what Stearns or Shimkus would do? More importantly, however, the money is already obligated. It is impossible for the government to take it away at this point. The only thing Barton (or anyone else) can do at this point is cut the budget for monitoring and enforcement.

Fun times ahead.
