Poor Steve Kagen (D-WI). Just a couple of months ago he embarrassed himself by claiming to insult the President and First Lady at the White House and assaulting Karl Rove in the bathroom. Now he's admitting he lied to get elected in his heavily Republican district.
According to the Majority Accountability Project, Kagen ran his campaign as a conservative Democrat promising to "require full disclosure of all earmarks" and work toward ending "all pork-barrel projects." But that has not happened.
Kagen is running as fast as he can from his pledges and won't divulge any of his requests for pork.
In a district that the Republicans will probably take back in 2008, Kagen is doing all he can to be a one term wonder.
