Back Story: A dive into pork barrel politics during the Napolitano administration

They say everything old becomes new again, and that can be especially true in politics. This summer, we’ve asked Hank Stephenson of the Arizona Agenda to step into the wayback machine, and talk to some former newsmakers about notable moments in Arizona political history — and how they relate to events taking place now. 

We’re calling the series Back Story, and today we’re talking about pork barrel politics, specifically during the Napolitano administration.

Hank spoke with The Show and former state lawmaker Ron Gould more about it.
