Broadband Stimulus plan was political payola

The Broadband Stimulus plan really had only 1 purpose - flood the country with money to help juice the economy. It never was about actually improving anything. Most of that money was also funneled to politically connected people as payoffs for political contributions. Though I must admit that the West Virginia situation is one of the most blatant examples.

A democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the voters discover that they can vote themselves money from the public treasury.

Who are the "politically connected...as payoffs for political contributions" in WVA. Are there many 1%'ers there, especially democratic ones?
