This series examines how federal funds that used to be available to charities via a grant application system are now being given out as earmarks. These are funds included in the budget as line items at the discretion of members of congress, commonly known as "pork." Charities now receive federal funds not on the basis of merit or usefulness to taxpayers, but on the basis of the quality of their political connections.
