28. Here is one story...

"Personal contact with the senator can smooth the way for some groups seeking funding.

This year, the chief of the Women's Museum in Dallas, Wanda Brice, was at a social function in Dallas with Hutchison and mentioned the need for funds for educational outreach, according to museum officials. The museum's application for a federal grant had been rejected last year by the Institute of Museum and Library Services.

Hutchison, however, is sponsoring a $200,000 earmark for the museum for next year.

"Senator Hutchison knows us because she has been involved from the beginning," said Fran Lobpries, director of development at the museum. "So it was easier to make the case."

Brice had contributed $1,000 to Hutchison's Senate campaign in 2005 and $1,000 to her campaign in 1997-1998."

Must be nice to be friends with Kay Bailey Hutchison.
