GA Sen Saxby Chambliss improper use of PAC money
Posted in the Athens Forum
Quote from above article:
“Sen. Saxby Chambliss’s (R-GA) leadership PAC dropped $107,752 at the Breakers resort in Palm Beach during the 2012 election cycle. That is over three times as much money as he gave the National Republican Senatorial Committee to get fellow Republicans elected. One year, Chambliss spent nearly one-third of his entire leadership PAC funds on golf, limos, and at least one private jet ride. His leadership PAC also picked up a $26,814 dinner tab at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse and $10,344 at Pebble Beach.
The 60 Minutes special also revealed how members of Congress exploit a self-loan loophole that allows politicians to loan their own campaigns money at high interest rates and then let the loans linger to generate hundreds of thousands of dollars in passive streams of profit for themselves.”
Chambliss is basically a racketeer and should be charged with RICO crimes:
It is very unfortunate that this is business as usual in Washington. These politicians spend huge dollars making deals with Corporate America. In return these companies move jobs off shore and open offices t in other counties to avoid paying taxes. Many of the politicians are too loyal to their parties, both Democrats and Republican. The corporations are loyal to Wall Street. The only patriots that want the best for America are individual citizens that are too busy or distracted, trying to earn a living, to realize the downward slope that America is heading. If we don’t wake up and protect this nation, I am not talking militarily, it will be too late to change things. If it is not already.
