Vulnerable Democratic Sen. Doug Jones (Ala.) dropped more than $3,000 in campaign funds to visit some swanky European hotels in an effort to court donations from American Democrats living abroad. Ok AMERICANS LIVING ABROAD, sure!!!!
According to Federal Election Commission numbers reported by Fox News on Sunday, the expensive getaway took place in December:
The Alabama Democrat spent $487 to stay at the K+K Hotel Cayre in Paris, billed as "a beautiful historic building located in heart of Saint Germain Des Prés" that's within walking distance to Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. The hotel boasts "soundproofed" luxury rooms and private black marble bathrooms with underfloor heating.
The red-state politician up for reelection in November also spent $1,296 at the Baglioni Hotel in London, which describes itself as "one of the finest 5-star luxury hotels in London" that's located in "one of the most exclusive, elegant and celebrated parts of the city."
Jones' getaway included $1,164 spent on Eurostar rail travel and $533.66 for Easy Jet airfare in England, according to campaign reports that Jones filed with the Federal Election Commission on Feb. 20.
The report adds that Jones' campaign-funded trip was related to a reception in Paris hosted by Democrats Abroad, which is "the official Democratic Party arm for the millions of Americans living outside the United States."
And while Democrats Abroad chronicled the senator's appearance at the early December event on the organization's website with pictures of attendees with the senator along with a glowing description of the evening, Fox reported, it appears that the information about the event has since been taken down, though the URL still mentions Jones and the event.
"Senator Jones came to Paris to support Democrats Abroad! As he explained, the race to hold his seat is going to be tough. Every vote will count! Senator Jones knows the importance of the overseas vote. In tight races, Democrats Abroad is the margin of victory!" the website description initially said, according to Fox. A Facebook event page for the reception indicates that it took place Dec. 7.

They don't really care whether the truth gets out, because the public no longer knows what's meant by "the truth."
Well, I mean, no one can tell the difference anymore between what's real and what's fake.
Anyway, the point is, I can tell you all of this, right out in the open, because it doesn't matter who knows about it. They won't know whether to believe it or not.-

A gun is a tool, Marion, no better or no worse than any other tool, an axe, a shovel or anything. A gun is as good or as bad as the man using it. Remember that.

Liberty's too precious a thing to be buried in books, Miss Saunders. Men should hold it up in front of them every single day of their lives and say: I'm free to think and to speak. My ancestors couldn't, I can, and my children will. Boys ought to grow up remembering that . - MR Smith Goes To Washington-
