PA-3: Kathy Dahlkemper "Discovers" Stimulus Money

For months we have heard how the stimulus money was sitting in Washington DC instead of going into projects. Anyone who has a slight bit of political intuition has known that this cash was basically a "Re-elect Democrats" war chest that was on reserve until election time.

Well, the cash is starting to flow.

Hat tip to The Herald (Sharon, PA):
The federal tap continues to pour money on LindenPointe with the awarding of a $100,000 grant for testing equipment in the tech center under construction there.

U.S. Rep. Kathy Dahlkemper, D-3rd District, Erie, presented a ceremonial check Tuesday from the Appalachian Regional Commission, an arm of the U.S. Department of Commerce, to city officials.
Dahlkemper started this election season as one of the top three Democrats most likely to lose. Needless to say, we're going to see lots of face time (and boatloads of cash) show up in the PA-3 region in the next few months.

Don't be fooled by it.
