Pelosi’s ‘Air Force Scandal’

Democrats living large on the taxpayers’ expense? Surely not.

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has racked up an amazing $2.1 million travel tab during the last two years according to government documents obtained by Judicial Watch through a FOIA request. The Air Force Gulfstream V she rides costs almost $6,000 per hour (an average cost per flight of over $28,000). But that’s nothing when you consider the $22,000 per hour price tag of the Boeing 757 that she requested for ferrying her between her district and Washington.

Interestingly enough, over $100,000 of which was for alcohol and food. What is she eating, unicorn steaks?

Now I understand that for national security reasons, Pelosi shouldn’t travel commercial. But a non-stop flight from D.C. to San Fransisco (first class) costs around $800. In fact, it would take Pelosi 35 first-class commercial flights to equal the cost of one trip on the Gulfstream. She may be second-in-line to replace POTUS, but she isn’t Queen.

If the Air Force is willing to take suggestions, I say that they should palletize her and her entourage and put them on Space Available transportation.

Looking forward to the ’60 Minutes’ expose on this. Holding my breath even.

  1. Pelosi & her entourage should be compelled to fly in a C-130, not a Boeing 757. If not a C-130, how about the old Navy transports that were also used as Spooky or Puff the Magic Dragon gunships in Nam? Just take out the gatling guns & put in the old seats. An old bag like her wouldn’t know the difference between the old airline seats & a lawn chair..
