Claire McCaskill’s support for a $1.9 million earmark for a Pleasure Beach Water Taxi Service in the abandoned and empty Pleasure Beach, Connecticut was exposed today in a new web video by the John Brunner for U.S. Senate campaign.

The Pleasure Beach Water Taxi earmark was originally included in the FY 2009 omnibus spending bill.  But when senators offered an amendment to specifically eliminate the Pleasure Beach Water Taxi earmark, McCaskill specifically voted to keep it. (Senate Amendment 610, 03/04/09)  Pleasure Beach, located in Connecticut, has been abandoned for more than a decade.
