Harold “Hal” Rogers (R-KY) has abused his congressional power to funnel hundreds of millions of taxpayer dollars to a shadowy network of organizations operated by political cronies and family members within his congressional district. It’s no wonder he’s been named by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) as one of the Most Corrupt Members of Congress. “Rep. Rogers claims to embrace the new Republican mantra of fiscal restraint, but his ...

Harold “Hal” Rogers, R-Ky., was once known for his zest for pork-barrel spending as a senior Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, which holds the purse strings of government spending.

U.S. Rep. Harold "Hal" Rogers (KY-05) applauds the U.S. House of Representatives for passing the Water Resources Development Act of 2016 (H.R. 5303).
