Heard on the Hill: Subsidized Sports Mags

Rep. Bennie Thompson was part of the winning team at the Congressional Shoot-Out in May when the Democrats beat the Republicans for the second time in as many years.

The Mississippi lawmaker a well-known marksman and all-around sports buff might have supplemented his hands-on experience through his 2010 subscription to Shooting Sportsman and a 2011 subscription to Field and Stream, according to House accounting records.

(Dont worry, the Members Congressional Handbook says subscriptions are OK expenses.)

Well, we guess you can make a case that the $32 Shooting Sportsman subscription and the $44.91 subscription to Field and Stream are good for research, although Thompsons office didnt return our calls for comment.

The subscription to Field and Stream is good until 2014 thats two election cycles! so Thompson must be feeling pretty confident about his re-election chances.
