McCain and Sarah Palin have been touring the country with their "maverick" message, the centerpiece of which is their shared battle against "wasteful Washington spending," otherwise known as pork barrel spending. But it seems Johna and Sarah haven't always been on the same page. At one time McCain focused on Palin's own Wasilla, Washington as a poster child for pork. According to CNN, he "singled out for criticism about $2 million worth of those projects in a 2001 statement opposing a transportation spending bill. McCain's list of "objectionable" spending included a $2.5 million road project for the town that then had a population of 5,500, as well as a $450,000 appropriation for an agricultural processing plant there."
So, will the town have to give this dirty money back?
