Story link: GOP Congressman "flies first class".
"Congressman, do you think it’s appropriate to fly first class while 57 TSA agents aren’t being paid?” the person says to Rep. Rodney Davis (R-Ill.), in an apparent reference to the Transportation Security Administration’s 57,000 employees, who are being required to work without pay.Unless proven differently, there is no reason to suspect Rep. Davis used taxpayer money in upgrading to first-lass. I'm sure if he did, and his office is lying, all the good little LiberTards out there will do their very best to unearth the truth. The truth? Their "truth".
A tipster who asked to remain anonymous shared the video with HuffPost, which hasn’t been able to identify the person who approached Davis.
Davis remained silent, prompting the person to say, “Taking that as a yes.”
“Taxpayers paid for this flight? Fair enough,” he added.
Davis did not use his taxpayer-provided budget to purchase a first-class ticket and has never done so, his spokeswoman Ashley Phelps told HuffPost in an email.
His office bought a regular coach ticket, but he was upgraded automatically because of his frequent flyer status, she added. “There was no additional cost to taxpayers.”
Dear Unidentified BRAVE SJW passenger who can operate video on cell phone: STFU unless you have the facts.
