• Pork-barrel politics involves promises to spend large amounts of money in an area to make the local people more likely to vote for a particular politician or political party.

• I submit that this return to the pathway of pork-barrel politics is a very slippery slope. It is ethically questionable because it leads to the abuse of power.
