Ron Paul and other members of the house use campaign dollars for personal use to the tune of Millions. Acceptable or not?
In the past two election cycles,
Americans donated close to $2 billion to candidates running for the
U.S. House. Their contributions not only went to fund core campaign costs,
but also to candidates' babysitters, five-star hotels in Athens,
six-figure salaries for candidates' family members and thousands of
dollars in interest payments to the candidates themselves.
A 347-page report on House campaign contributions released Thursday by Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington suggests that it pays to be related to a member of Congress.
Throughout the 2008 and 2010 election cycles, more than half of the
current members of the House - 248 to be exact - each spent more than
$10,000 in campaign cash to pay themselves and their family a combined
total of $5.6 million, according to the non-profit ethics watchdog group
Wanna see who? See the link below. I will give you a hint though. Ron Paul was the worst offender of all for giving donations out to his family members.
Yeah thats right, Mr. I think secret service is welfare.
