Bill Cassidy Criticizes Mary Landrieu’s Use Of Senate Funds To Fund Campaign Charter Flights
U.S. Rep. Bill Cassidy said results of an audit of U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu's finances probably would not be made public before the Nov. 4 elections.
Recent reports showed Landrieu charged to her senate office, instead of to her campaign account, charter flights for campaign trips. Though she instructed the charter company to reimburse her senate account, Landrieu could still face ethics fines since the actions were a violation of federal law.
"We don't tolerate this," Cassidy said. "I'm not paying tax dollars for you to take a charter jet for your campaign."
Cassidy questioned whether taxpayers or the Landrieu campaign would pay for the audit, but regardless, he did not expect the results to be made public in time for the election.
