Nomination for 'Big Porker'

Congressman Hal Rogers of Kentucky makes Portman look like a piglet.

Hal Rogers hauls home tax dollars by the billions...

...The prisons alone are impressive. Tennessee has one federal prison. Ohio has one. Rogers' district has three.

The congressman has sway over the U.S. Bureau of Prisons' budget. Rogers said that when he learns more prison beds are needed, he calls the bureau
and lobbies for one of his counties. Bureau officials, respecting his wishes, have found themselves on planes to Kentucky.
