Bill Christofferson summarizes Wisconsin members of Congress who had their travel expenses paid for by private corporations & non-profits:
- Jim Sensenbrenner: 19 trips; 168K
- David Obey: 13 trips; 73K
- Paul Ryan: 6 trips: 25K
- Tammy Baldwin; 12 trips: 29K
Hard to see how any of this benefits Wisconsinites. Sensenbrenner’s trips were paid for by many special interests, including the Hollywood Lobbyists (Sensenbrenner’s committee has jurisdiction on copyright issues).
