The House Speaker, that is.
It reads like a dream order for a wild frat party: Makerâ€™s Mark whiskey, Courvoisier cognac, Johnny Walker Red scotch, Grey Goose vodka, E&J brandy, Baileyâ€™s Irish CrÃ¨me, Bacardi Light rum, Jim Beam whiskey, Beefeater gin, Dewars scotch, Bombay Sapphire gin, Jack Daniels whiskey â€¦ and Corona beer.
But that single receipt makes up just part of the more than $101,000 taxpayers paid for â€œin-flight servicesâ€ â€“ including food and liquor, for House Speaker Nancy Pelosiâ€™s trips on Air Force jets over the last two years. Thatâ€™s almost $1,000 per week.
I could use a spare bottle of Grey Goose if she’s got a bottle (or even half!) laying around. I just got our sampler of vanilla beans from around the world in, and now the 2 cups of extract I planned to make aren’t going to be nearly enough.
