Brooks is in her 3rd term representing the 5th district, north of Indianapolis. She is chair of the Ethics Committee, a member of Energy and Commerce and the Republican Study Committee. Even by the dim standards of House Leadership, Brooks’ 53.6% legislative score is pathetic, saved from being the worst among Indiana Republicans by her even-more appalling colleague, Larry Bucshon. Brooks loves pork more than even the average RINO. Her consistent votes for raising the debt ceiling, for unfunded mandates and disaster relief, place her near the top of the list of Republicans whom conservatives should target for defeat.
