Franking

May 17, 2012

Did you know that your Congressman and Senators get to use a privilege, for incumbents only, that makes sure you pay for their promotions? It’s called Franking. There’s a great article in today’s News-Press showing how those loud mouthed right wingers who complain about government spending abused the priviledge.

Florida’s Nazi Congressman, Allen West (R) spent $127,050 of your dollars to promote himself from April through December last year. Our Congressman, Connie Mack, who is running for Senator sent out an illegal mailing to EVERY registered voter in the State of Florida. Oops,Connie said, “It was a mistake.” Yeah, OK.

Read the article so you will be informed about how phony those GOP freshman are as they spent over $25.6 million in just 9 months.
