Animal’s Daily Grifting Politicians News

Before I get into this, check out the latest chapter of Barrett’s Privateers – Unrepentant Sinner over at Glibertarians.

Now, file this under “politicians partying hardy on the taxpayer’s dime,” and apply that to one of the most corrupt, detestable pols on the planet, DC Mayor Muriel Bowser:

Washington D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and her entourage are set to travel to Las Vegas on a business trip, shortly after the Democratic mayor faced scrutiny for going on a taxpayer-funded trip to the Masters Golf tournament.

A description of the event on the mayor’s public calendar said that she would attend the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) on an “economic mission.”

“On Sunday, Monday and Tuesday, Mayor Bowser will attend the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) LAS VEGAS to attract retail to the District of Columbia,” the description said. “This economic mission is coordinated by the Washington, DC Economic Partnership, which has organized the District’s presence at ICSC since 2001.”

What utter horseshit.  And the people of the District voted for this woman.  This is the constituency that the Democrats want to make the 51st state?

This is one of the most egregious abuses of taxpayer funds that I’ve seen in some time, and if you look at recent history, that’s saying something. In a just world, Mayor Bowser would be tarred and feathered and ridden out of the District on a fence rail for this abuse of authority and funding.

But in the District?  She’ll probably be re-elected.  Such is the Deep Blue.
