Landrieu's Campaign Flight Charged to Taxpayers

Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-LA) "used government money to charter a private plane to travel to a campaign fundraiser" last year, "in violation of federal law," CNN reports.

A Landrieu spokesman said that the charter company "mistakenly billed Landrieu's Senate office instead of her... campaign. Levy said the campaign noticed the error a few weeks ago and asked the company to refund the Senate office and bill the campaign, which the company did."
