The Blimp To Nowhere

Politico's John Bresnahan explains how you can win a $1.6 million Congressional earmark for "dirigible research" even if you have "no experience in government contracting, let alone in building blimps." The method: hire as your lobbyist a former aide to Texas Republican Pete Sessions, the Congressman who made the earmark request.
