Madam Foxx, Afraid of Bad Publicity

The most remarkable thing about Congresswoman Virginia Foxx's claiming that she'll never ever again -- next year, that is -- put special pork project earmarks into the budget is that she fears the bad publicity: "Though Foxx said she will swear off earmarks next year, ideology didn't drive her decision. Rather, she suggested, she was worried about negative publicity."

That little teapot!

If bad publicity bugs her so much, looks like she might decide to hold the occasional town hall for her constituents, since nothing has caused her more bad publicity than her refusal to meet with the voters and answer their questions.
