She said she was gonna do it, and she did it. Per an order from that tricksy Nancy Pelosi, House members' quarterly office expenses are now being posted online, where anyone (i.e., Politico) can read them.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) spent $2,993 in taxpayer money on flowers between June and October. House Majority Whip James Clyburn has a thing for Chantilly Donuts, spending about $265 at the Virginia shop in the past quarter.
House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) racked up about $24,617 in catering costs. House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer (D-Md.) spent about $1,561 in bottled water and House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) spent no money on water but a touch over $18,000 in food. House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.) spent about $24,116 on food and beverage.
Cause for concern? Um, yeah. James Clyburn is severely dehydrated and bingeing on doughnuts, what is he thinking? For the love of God, somebody get a case of Poland Spring over to the Rayburn House Office Building, stat!
