Our Tweet of the Week comes from Rep. Jeff Flake (R-AZ). Rep. Flake has his own “best of” feature. He highlights the “Egregious Earmark of the Week.” Last week, he put the spotlight on a $600,000 earmark for coastal tidal gauges in Alabama.

From Rep. Flake, here’s the Tweet of the Week:

@JeffFlake: The Tide may be nat’l champs, but this week’s egregious earmark shows the tide has yet to turn for earmark reform. http://bit.ly/6KkMjh
