"I am proud I brought home the bacon"
By Peter Samuel
Congressman Ed Towns (Dem, Brookyln NY) doesn't dress it up. He says in a statement on his retirement from the US Congress: "I am proud to have brought millions of dollars into my district for much needed..." That of course is millions of dollars of other people's money. Thieves, robbers and embezzlers at least spare us the claim to be doing good works.
