Speaker Pelosi spends your hard-earned tax dollars on expensive booze

Respectfully demand that your representative stop these abuses of taxpayer dollars

February 1, 2010

According to WorldNetDaily (WND), Judicial Watch has obtained documents under the Freedom of Information Act which reveal that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent over $2.1 million on air travel over the last two years, treating the Air Force jets on which she flies as if they were her own personal air taxi service.

She often reserves the jets, then cancels them at the last minute despite the considerable cost involved in pre-flight preparations.

Worse, $101,000 of that total was for food and alcohol consumed by her, her staff, her family members and other invited passengers while in flight. (See the actual receipts for the hard liquor here.)

Bob Unruh of WND wrote, "It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch ... E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Creme, Bacardi Light rum ... Bombay Sapphire gin ... and Corona beer."

While many families struggle to make ends meet financially, the leader of the people's House is snatching money out of their wallets to treat her guests to the finest and most expensive booze money can buy so they can party down while in the air.
