Taxpayers are not just paying for Pelosi’s expensive booze and food, they’re paying for the military to play taxi with her kids and grand kids, too.
“Pelosi One” seats 200 and can fly nonstop from Washington to San Francisco.
Doug Ross reported on the latest t*rd to float to the surface in the Pelosi swamp.
Apparently, the Speaker has been using the US military to taxi her kids and grand kids across the country without any US Representatives even on board. The cost of each flight is up to $18,000 per hour.
Using Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) requests, Judicial Watch uncovered thousands of pages of travel documents related to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s use of military aircraft.
What hasn’t been revealed so far is that military aircraft are being used to shuttle Pelosi’s kids and grandkids between DC and San Francisco without any Congressional representatives even onboard! Put simply, the United States Air Force is serving as a multi-billion dollar chauffeur- and baby-sitting service for Nancy Pelosi’s kids and grandkids — presumably because commercial travel is beneath the families of the autocrats.
Truly. She feels your pain.
UPDATE: The Speaker claims her children and grand children never flew without her on board.
UPDATE 2: Doug Ross posted these updates-
Update: Judicial Watch provided separate documents from an earlier FOIA request which show that “most, if not all” of the flights did indeed have the Speaker aboard. This is being researched and, until then, corrections are noted below.
Update II: A commenter provides a link to DOD 4515.13-R “Air Transportation Eligibility”, which seems to indicate any travel by the Speaker’s adult — non-dependent — children and grandchildren is off-limits.
Earlier: This post serves as an update to yesterday’s original revelations that military jets appear to have been improperly utilized by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to shuttle her children and grandchildren around the country.
