Because Really, Nothing Says "Limited Government" Like Paying a Journalist $21,500 to Help "Strengthen Marriage"


Looks like there's another tool in the Armstrong Williams box: gay-marriage-basher Maggie Gallagher. I'd love to talk about the journalistic ethics of it all, but before that can someone here (or preferably at the National Review) please tell me just why the living puke I'm paying federal taxes?

Gallagher received an additional $20,000 from the Bush administration in 2002 and 2003 for writing a report, titled "Can Government Strengthen Marriage?", for a private organization called the National Fatherhood Initiative. That report, published last year, was funded by a Justice Department grant, said NFI spokesman Vincent DiCaro.
