Taxpayers paid for Loretta Sanchez to go on vacation

Loretta Sanchez uses fed funds to go on vacation

Say it ain’t so Loretta!  Apparently Congresswoman Loretta Sanchez used federal money to essentially go on vacation, according to the O.C. Register.

“When 10 members of Congress wanted to study climate change, they did more than just dip their toes into the subject,” The Wall Street Journal reports. “They went diving and snorkeling at the Great Barrier Reef. They also rode a cable car through the Australian rain forest, visited a penguin rookery and flew to the South Pole.

“The 11-day trip — with six spouses traveling along as well — took place over New Year’s 2008,” the paper says.  And the total cost to taxpayers was about half-a-million dollars!

Voters have a choice next year.  They can vote for Sanchez or they can vote for Quang X. Pham – a successful businessman and author who served our country in the U.S. Marines.  Click here to learn more about Pham’s campaign.
