Congressman took family on $30k trip to Scotland to attend a wedding - and billed it to his campaign
A New Jersey congressman is under investigation for using campaign funds to cover personal expenses for a luxurious vacation in Scotland for his wife and two daughters.

U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-1st Dist.) splashed out more than $30,000 to attend the wedding of an unnamed donor - an expense that was vetted by his wife who serves as a volunteer compliance officer for the politician.

The House Committee on Ethics ruled in early September there is 'substantial reason to believe' Andrews inappropriately used campaign funds for the family trip and the Committee will extend their investigation to fully review the matter.

In June 2011, Andrews shelled out $7,725 for two rooms at the Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh for a three night stay.

Additionally, his campaign covered $463 for a wedding gift from Bloomingdale's, $953 to cover incidentals like cabs rides, meals and tips and additional funds to pay for flowers and gifts.

The only two things guaranteed that the government will spend your tax dollars on are themselves and war. Tax revenues will never go to pay for any other causes that politicians claimed. I find it amazing that liberals have so much faith in government and absolutely zero faith at all in the general population. The average criminal steals much less money, assaults much fewer people and destroys far fewer lives than any of the psychopaths in government who are out to dominate the common people. Make sure to get out and vote. LMAO!!1!!1ONE!!SIX

oh those damn dems, here's another one:

"Wendy Rosen, the Democratic challenger to Republican Rep. Andy Harris in the 1st Congressional District, withdrew from the race Monday amid allegations that she voted in elections in both Maryland and Florida in 2006 and 2008."

There are three genders in the US, male, female and democrat. Democrat men are not really women, they just act like it.

Not much different than Osambo putting his two daughters down as "Senior Advisors" when he uses both 767 Presidential planes to go on vacations.
