Pelosi's Last Hurrah

By Jane Jamison

San Francisco's congresswoman of 23 years, the daughter of a Baltimore mayor, has a sense of self-entitlement and extravagance unimagined by most public servants and ordinary folk.  Her indulgences charged to American taxpayers are now documented and damning.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) has spent or authorized spending at least $3.2 million on trips, hotels, food, high-priced liquor, and military jet rides in the past two years.

Pelosi spent at least $1.1 million of taxpayer funds ushering a delegation of at least 106 people to the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen (the "global warming" conference where nothing was decided). The entourage stayed two nights.  According to CBS News,

For 15 Democratic and 6 Republican Congressmen, food and rooms for two nights cost $4,406 tax dollars each. That's $2,200 a day...

Total hotel, meeting rooms and "a couple" of $1,000-a-night hospitality suites topped $400,000.

Fifty-nine House and Senate staff flew commercial during the Copenhagen rush. They paid government rates -- $5-10,000 each -- totaling $408,064. Add three military jets -- $168,351 just for flight time -- and the bill tops $1.1 million dollars -- not including all the Obama administration officials who attended: well over 60.

Speaker Pelosi would not comment about the expenses to CBS News. Rep. Henry Waxman (D-Malibu) was also on the trip, but he says he "did not know" what expenses were incurred.

Judicial Watch, the public interest group that investigates and prosecutes government corruption, has just released a report on Speaker Pelosi's extravagant use of government aircraft.
