Why are we paying for Congress’s laundry?

a href=”http://watchdog.org/2009/12/14/top-food-other-expenditures-by-members-of-u-s-house-in-2009-q3/”>Earl Glynn has a fascinating look at congressional expenditures that taxpayers are paying for.Guam’s Delegate, for example, had all of us pick up $6,090.00 in food expenditures in Guam. Madeleine Bordalio may have no vote in Congress, but she can stick it to the taxpayers nonetheless.There’s also an $8.80 laundry bill taxpayers paid for and a whole lot more. Most interesting to me is that the Guam Delegate who has no vote and is only there because we took Guam from Spain in a war over a century ago and wanted to be kind has billed the taxpayers for more than any of the guys who can actually vote.
