Hippie Museum earmark removed

Looks like the hippies will have to find someone else to fund their museum. The Senate voted to remove Clinton and Schumer's earmark:

This month, in a mostly party-line 52-42 vote, Coleman voted with the majority to strip the $1 million earmark sought by New York Sens. Hillary Rodham Clinton and Charles Schumer, both Democrats. In another tie to the past, Coleman and Schumer attended high school together in the New York City borough of Brooklyn, just a few years before Woodstock.
