>> Say Doc, where to hell did ya get the "Pork Funding" for that project? Did ya siphon it of from some black account, that was slated for Cray? <<
Part of a grant associated with the No Child Left Behind act. Instead of actually using $$$ to pay for schools and teachers, it is realatively easy to create a tie-in for something bogus like Advanced Studies of Educational Theory.
First you find a successful, conservative, black front-man to promote his right-wing views of education and society, schedule some photo-ops with Sen. Santorum to get him to carry the torch and then step back and lap up the gravy.
Figure on a 15% payoff for your front-man ("research assistant") when detailing your proposal.
