Hal Rogers

Hal Rogers Kentucky mugshot

The long list of earmarks he’s steered to well-connected campaign contributors shows Rep. Hal Rogers has yet again earned the title “Prince of Pork.”

The Kentucky Republican earmarked millions of dollars to a Kentucky manufacturer, Phoenix Products, which produces leak proof drip pans for the Army.  The Phoenix drip pans cost an average of $17,000 each, even though a competitor charges about $2,500 for a similar part.

Rep. Rogers, nicknamed the “Prince of Pork” for his habitual earmarking, has taken more than $35,000 in campaign contributions from the owners of Phoenix Products and employees of its lobbying firm.
