This article simply points out Eshoo's funding requests as they relate to Mountain View. It's not free advertising for her re-election and it doesn't make any analysis of whether she is doing her job well or whether these requests are legitimately necessary. That's up to you to decide.

According to 2005 records, California received 78 cents in Federal spending for every dollar of taxes paid to the Federal Government and ranked 43 out of the 50 states for such spending. Unless this has changed much in the last five years, I don't think we have to feel guilty about being a pork state anytime soon.

We elected Rep Eshoo to be our voice in Washington in which the Rep has done a job well done.
There is nothing about PORK in the process to date. It appears the political person stating PORK does not understand pork barrel politics. The state of California does not have in general have any pork projects in the federal budget unlike other states.
