Billy Long changes his mind; pork is OK

I will freely admit the headline for this post is misleading.

As far as I know, Republican Seventh District Congressional candidate Billy Long, who signed the so-called No Pork Pledge, referring to pork barrel projects, has not changed his mind, but a 48-hour report filed Monday with the Federal Election Commission indicates that he is receptive to certain types of pork.

The report shows Long accepted a $1,000 contribution from the Pork PAC, based in Des Moines, Iowa, as well as $1,000 from Mount Vernon businessman Dwight Wilmoth.
