CREW's Melanie Sloan Issues Statement on House Democrats' Ban on Private Contractor Earmarks

This is a terrific first step in breaking the link between campaign dollars and legislation.” Sloan continued, “It is ironic, of course, that this action follows so close on the heels of the House Ethics Committee’s PMA report, which found no link between contributions and earmarks, but then again no one really believed that anyway.”
