Earmark investigation: Bennie Thompson on Bolton, Miss., road improvement

In Mississippi, Thompson secured a $900,000 earmark that was later used to resurface about two dozen roads in 2010 in Hinds County. One of those was LC Turner Circle, a quarter-mile residential loop in the small town of Bolton, where Thompson owns a home and two lots and his daughter owns a home. The funding also helped repave another street in Bolton where Thompson reports an ownership interest in a home.
