Fifth District Congressman Rodney Alexander sponsored “earmarks” of nearly $1 million for the Greater North Louisiana Community Development Corporation (GNLCDC), a 501(c)3 charity closely allied with the Town of Jonesboro’s controversial mayor Leslie Thompson.
An investigation by Lincoln Parish News Online (LPNO) has revealed that a fiscal year 2008 Small Business Administration (SBA) earmark of $650 thousand was sponsored by Alexander.

For the FY 2009, the Alexander sponsored earmark was for $300 thousand.
