Congressmen like Mark Sanford who sleep
in their offices? ´It´s almost nasty,´ critics say

Post & Courier [Charleston, SC], by Schuyler Kropf

Posted By:Attercliffe, 3/7/2018 8:26:57 AM

Congressmen who sleep in their D.C. offices — including Republicans from South Carolina — are under fire once again from Democrats irked over where they put their heads at night. The bunking habit, they contend, is both an abuse of taxpayer funds and, as one Mississippi Democrat termed it, "almost nasty." A letter from more than two dozen members of the Congressional Black Caucus, including South Carolina Rep. Jim Clyburn, is asking for an ethics review into the "legality and propriety" of members using their offices as overnight apartments. U.S. Reps. Mark Sanford, R-Mount Pleasant; Trey Gowdy, R-Spartanburg; and Jeff Duncan, R-Laurens, are

Where were these “sainted CBC” when one of their own was chasing skirts? The solution for this is for the Congressional members and senators remain in their districts and conduct their business via video conference.

Having to maintain two residences - one in your home state and another in DC is ridiculous. The states should own the houses for their Senators and Congressmen.

For example: A state could own a condo complex complete with security control and meeting rooms. The state could run a limo service for their state reps.

That way it becomes more viable for the non-wealthy who would like to serve one term and then go back to their previous job. Our leaders would be less embedded in DC and more connected with the needs of their state. When my company sends me out of town to do work for them they pay for where I stay.

And of course repeal the 17th amendment and have the Senators appointed by the state´s legislature as was the initial design. The end result of the 17th amendment was to give the MSM a large influence over who gets elected Senator.

Take one of the numerous vacant buildings in DC and convert it into a dorm, with a working kitchen and lounge downstairs. Communal bathroom. Women on one floor, men on the other. Problem solved.

They might even get more work done if they all have to live together.

An anagram of dormitory is "dirty room," and it might be argued that an office that is both worked in and lived in might be dirtier, at least before regular clean up, which is what all civilized people do anyway. There´s nothing wrong with a no frills lifestyle. Simplicity.

But why all the fuss? Rents as well as crime rates in the federal district are high, and congressmen neither make a great deal of money nor can afford extra security. A congressional office building would have to be one of the most secure places on the planet. No rent for a serving congressman. Then Uber to Reagan Airport for the commercial flight back home to South Carolina. I can see no reason to criticize Rep. Sanford. If that´s what he wants, who´s going to try to stop him?

Why should the liberal and socialist Democrat congressional black caucus give a crap if Republican members of congress snooze the night away in their offices, as that is no skin of the teeth of congressional black caucus members. Nobody else cares, but then again the congressional black caucus may be able to make a political issue out of their "concern" to a percentage of their very low information voting constituencies.

U.S. Navy drafts plans to house 25,000

WASHINGTON - The U.S. Navy is drafting plans to house up to 25,000 immigrants on its bases and other facilities, at an estimated cost of about $233 million over six months, as the Trump administration seeks to ease a mounting crisis on the Mexican border, a U.S. official said on Friday. The Navy has not so far been asked to provide accommodation for migrants who have entered the United States illegally. The official, who asked not to be named, stressed that the draft memo, which looks at setting up housing on Navy airfields in Alabama, was for planning purposes only.

CHINA have deliberately engaged in provoking US military pilots in the East China Sea by attacking the servicemen with lasers, it has been claimed. It is thought on nearly two dozen occasions in the past few months Bejing’s military have harassed pilots flying over the Pacific ocean. The targeting of the military personnel comes as tensions between the two countries continue to escalate. Beijing is furious at the US for their military activity close to China.

Tony Blair yesterday told the EU to overhaul its approach to immigration to stem the growing influence of hard-line leaders. The former Prime Minister said the bloc faced an ‘insidious and dangerous challenge’ that would be worsened by ignoring concerns about immigration. His intervention comes despite his decision not to introduce border restrictions to new EU countries in 2004 being blamed for fuelling anti-immigration sentiment in the UK.Mr Blair, who is campaigning to reverse Brexit, said immigration was a key driver behind the referendum result and urged EU politicians to show they had ‘heard the message’. ‘To put it in blunt contemporary terms:

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Donald Trump urged Republicans lawmakers on Friday to drop their efforts to pass comprehensive immigration legislation until after the November elections that he hopes will see more party members voted into Congress. The Republican president, faced with a public outcry over his policy that separated children from their migrant parents at the U.S. border with Mexico, tried to refocus the immigration debate on Congress in a series of early posts on Twitter. Despite Republican control of both the House of Representatives and the Senate, the party’s slim 51-49 majority in the latter chamber makes some Democratic support

Washington/McAllen, Texas - The U.S. military has been asked to get ready to house up to 20,000 immigrant children, officials said on Thursday, as President Donald Trump’s efforts to roll back a widely condemned policy of separating children from their parents were beset by confusion. While no decision has been made, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has already assessed three military bases in Texas and would review another in Arkansas, Pentagon spokeswoman Dana White said. She said HHS had asked the Pentagon “to determine its capabilities to provide up to 20,000 temporary beds for

View comments The Defense Department agreed on Thursday to provide living space for up to 20,000 minors who have come across the U.S.-Mexico border illegally this year. Army Lt. Col. Jamie Davis, a Pentagon spokesman, said the Department of Health and Human Services made a request for the housing, which will likely be needed through the end of 2018 and beyond. The move comes amid a growing political battle over the fate of detained illegal immigrants, including more than 2,000 children separated form parents and other adults who are awaiting prosecution for their border-jumping.

Trump has complained repeatedly that the ´fake media´ hasn´t fairly covered the Singapore summit.

Because we’re really talking about ILLEGAL immigration (50,000 each month) and unaccompanied alien children showing up by the thousands in search of asylum. The argument takes a nasty turn over the wisdom of separating kids from their parents. Some say this is cruel. The government says it’s the law.

An op-ed in Friday’s Washington Post by the long-time political pundit and conservative calls for voters to end the “carnage of Republican misrule” in Washington. Mr. Will claimed the “most telegenic example” of a need to oust Republicans exists with the administration’s “zero tolerance” policy regarding illegal immigrants along the U.S. southern border. “The Republican-controlled Congress, which waited for Trump to undo by unilateral decree the border folly they could have prevented by actually legislating, is an advertisement for the unimportance of

Taxes: Whatever you think about the issue of taxing internet sales, the simple fact is that the Supreme Court has just guaranteed that people across the country will now be paying more in state taxes. It´s hard for us to see how this is good news. In its 5-4 decision on South Dakota v. Wayfair, the court overturned two previous rulings that prevented states from taxing sales of out-of-state companies. That meant a catalog company based in Maine didn´t have to navigate 45 state sales-tax laws to figure out how much each customer owed, and then remit that money to the

How´s this for sneaky? Sen. John McCain, not too long after seeking conservative and Republican votes in his failed 2008 bid for the presidency, went right after those same conservative voters without telling them, by egging on the IRS to ruin them. It´s the sort of political back-stabbing that defies belief, taking an active role in destroying the Tea Party, which was an authentic grassroots movement of local groups calling for smaller government. But sure enough, Judicial Watch has found McCain´s central role right there in the documents: Judicial Watch today released newly obtained internal IRS documents, including material revealing that Sen.
