GREENE ASSAILS PORK-BARREL POLITICS

Republican 2nd Congressional District candidate Enid Greene released her campaign's newest radio ad titled "Congressional Ethics" and called for an end to pork-barrel politics.

Greene said she would work to repeal the $40,000 congressional pay raise and in the meantime give her raise to local charities if elected in November."Unpaid restaurant bills, embezzlement, drug dealing in the House post office, bounced checks - in the rest of America this is called breaking the law. In Washington, it's called Congress," she said. "Until we have positive change and congressional ethics, we will not balance the budget or put an end to pork-barrel politics."
