Political Insider blogger Jim Galloway noticed this item from Roll Call about a letter GOP Rep. Phil Gingrey wrote requesting a certain earmark:
On April 1, 2008, Rep. Phil Gingrey paid Mitchell Hunter, his former chief of staff, $6,000 for campaign consulting fees. That payment came one day after the Georgia Republican signed a letter to the Appropriations Committee requesting an earmark for the National Center for State Courts, which had recently hired Hunter as a lobbyist.
Galloway expects more on this to break throughout the day. Gingrey faces Democrat John Barrow in November.
