Turns out, Ron Paul is a Crook

A new watchdog group report tells us that when it comes to travel expenses..

…he may have been reimbursed for the same flights both under his official allowance as congressman, and by either non-profit groups under his control or his campaign committee.

The revelation would be ironic in part because Paul made fiscal responsibility a central tenet of his 2012 presidential campaign. The congressman celebrated a major victory in July when his bill to audit the Federal Reserve for greater transparency passed the House.

Paul’s possible double-billing has been in the public eye since Roll Call first reported it in February, but CREW says there is no evidence Paul has repaid the money since.

I’m sure his followers won’t mind this at all. But for the rest of us it is kinda funny. Not Ha Ha funny, though.

    …Oh, well, he meant fiscal responsibility for all those OTHER guys, y’know, the, uh, undeserving ones. I’m sure he actually deserves all that extra money, on ‘count of he works so hard fightin’ for freedom and justice ‘n’ all.
