"Reid may seek earmarks in 2012"

Politico has this report.

Here is an excerpt:

"It turns out Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid may seek earmarks next year, after all.

Speaking to reporters Thursday in the Capitol, Reid responded to the earmark ban announced by the Senate Appropriations Committee this week, saying it amounts to a 'one-year moratorium' necessary to 'get the appropriations bills done, and with [President Barack Obama’s veto threat] hanging over, we can’t get them done,' he said."
