Nancy Pelosi, Profligate Spender of Your Money
Posted By John Perazzo On February 3, 2010 @ 12:48 pm In DTN Profiles | 2 Comments
According to documents  obtained under the Freedom of Information Act, during 2008-2009 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel — including $101,429 for in-flight expenses such as food and alcohol. She regularly used Air Force aircraft to travel to her district at an average cost of $28,210.51 per flight. Of 103 Pelosi-led congressional delegations during the two-year period, 31 trips included members of her family. Last April, Citizens Against Government Waste (CAGW), a non-partisan government watchdog group, named Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid  as its 2008 “Porkers of the Year ” because of what CAGW viewed as their consistent record of fiscal irresponsibility.
