Joe Barton’s Family Foundation

Joe Barton has been in Congress for 25 years, longer than Eddie Bernice Johnson’s 17 years. On Sunday, the NYTimes looked at how some members of Congress use charitable foundations to collect extra cash when, presumably, their campaign committees don’t need it.  In 2008, Barton’s took in $107,000 and paid out $48,000 to one Amy Barton, who happens to be the Congressman’s daughter-in-law.

Me, I’m thinking about becoming a Tea Partier.
