Money for nothing (again)

Someone's not telling the truth, and it's either Paul Broun or the anonymous sources. And, considering the congressman doesn't typically disclose his expenditures, it'll be hard to find out.

It will be somewhat pathetic, though, if Broun blew his budget by midyear by spending more than half of it on franking expenses during a campaign year, thus using taxpayer funds to promote his re-election bid. Furthermore, as someone who I've somewhat respected for his principled philosophical stands - even if I have fundamental disagreements with them and think they're unsuitable for his role as a congressional representative - to see him casually spend public funds for personal gain with no regard for his constituents (or his staff who may or may not facing some cuts in the coming weeks) is beyond disappointing and irresponsible.
