The article reports that the Senate parliamentarian finds itself at the center of a hot dispute over earmarks in the U.S. Republicans claimed that Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid dismantled a reform and persuaded the parliamentarian to adopt an unexpected interpretation of classifying certain earmarks. Senator Jim DeMint, the chairman of the conservative Senate Republican Steering Committee, successfully convinced the parliamentarian to exempt earmarks in authorization bills for new rules.
