Taegan Goddard e-mailed a late-breaking bulletin tonight of a Capitol Hill pork scandal in the works:

Earmark Scandal Breaking

There’s a potentially big story breaking on Capitol Hill… Apparently 104 members of Congress of both parties — 42 Republicans and 62 Democrats — secured earmarks for a lobbying firm linked to Rep. John Murtha (D-PA) — in a single bill alone. The earmarks were inserted in a bill Murtha controlled as the defense appropriations subcommittee chairman.

The firm’s executives and clients are among Murtha’s biggest sources of campaign contributions.

Check back later for more details.

I’d like to see that list of 42 Republicans. Which lobbying firm? Which bill? The GOP members will have some explaining to do.

Dan Riehl has some details on the lobbying firm, PMA.
