$101,000 on Chocolate strawberries + grilled chicken for Pelosi

  1. $101,000 in two years on services while travelling with US Airforce

    If the US Airforce did all airline food, it would be strawberries dipped in dark chocolate and grilled chicken salads all round.

    Unfortunately this luxury is reserved for top US politicians alone, as new documents detailing Nancy Pelosi's travel expenses reveal.

    The former House Speaker was showered with a cornucopia of gourmet food and alcohol as she travelled over 90,000 miles around the world in just nine months last year - all courtesy of the US Airforce (USAF).

    On one overseas excursion, her office even wrote to the USAF asking for strawberries dipped in dark chocolate as a birthday treat.

    The documents, uncovered by political corruption watchdog Judicial Watch, reveal that the US taxpayer was billed for $101,429 (£64,000) in Mrs Pelosi's in-flight services over a period of two years.

    One internal Air Force email sent on March 25, 2010 said: 'The speaker’s office is requesting egg salad sandwiches on wheat toast with fruit (watermelon, etc) for desert [sic].

    'It’s the speaker’s B-Day tomorrow so we’re also asking for something like chocolate covered strawberries (dark chocolate preferred)…'

    Another member of the Air Force staff immediately replied: 'Copy all. We’ll plan something for the birthday and take care of the meal.

    mmm mmm filled up and ready for toilet

    There's something that can be done to reduce the deficit. All Congressional Representatives fly at their own expensive. There shall be no reimbursement of any kind from the US government.
  4. 1 k just for food per single flight per single person is perfectly fine by you.

    LOL I think we have found why US is in almost 15 Trillion debt.

    American math is different kind of math :D

    The US government should send the bitch a bill and demand reimbursement. If she doesn't pay, seize her assets and imprison her for fraud.
