Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze'

If this doesn't piss you off nothing will, as Nancy Pelosi's Air Follies have reached proportions America shouldn't tolerate for another weekend much less another 6 year term for this prima-donna. 

And after she's finally removed we should itemize her expenses and seek retribution since she and her husband can well afford to pay her accumulated bills for excesses fit for a queen which last time I checked she IS NOT AND NEVER WILL BE.

Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi's in-flight 'food, booze': "It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Maker's Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Bailey's Irish Crème, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey … and Corona beer.

But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for 'in-flight services' – including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. That's almost $1,000 per week.

Documents obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by Judicial Watch, which investigates and prosecutes government corruption, show Pelosi incurred expenses of some $2.1 million for her use of Air Force jets for travel over that time.

'Speaker Pelosi has a history of wasting taxpayer funds with her boorish demands for military travel,' Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton said today. 'And these documents suggest the Speaker's congressional delegations are more about partying than anything else.'

Pelosi, D-Calif., recently joined President Obama on a Judicial Watch list of Top 10 corrupt politicians because of her 'sense of entitlement,' the group said.

'Politicians believe laws and rules (even the U.S. Constitution) apply to the rest of us but not to them. Case in point: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and her excessive and boorish demands for military travel. Judicial Watch obtained documents from the Pentagon in 2008 that suggest Pelosi has been treating the Air Force like her own personal airline,' the evaluation said."  continued
