Is Jack Kingston asshole of the day for saying kids should have to do some work before getting subsidized lunches and then expensing $4200 in lunches himself?
You may recall we named him Asshole of the Day for saying kids should have to work to get their subsidized lunch. But now we know more about this guy:
Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) warned that there’s “no such thing as free lunch” for school children in Georgia, but he seems to have enjoyed a few.
An investigation by Georgia’s WSAV channel 3 found that Kingston, who is currently running for Senate and recently suggested students work cleaning cafeterias in exchange for lunch, had expensed as much as $4,182 worth of lunches for his office over the past three years.
"Kingston and his staff expensed nearly $4200 in meals for business purposes to his congressional office, paid for by the American taxpayer," WSAV 3’s Dan Kartunen reported. The amount could have purchased nearly 2,000 Georgia school lunches.
WSAV also found that Kingston also racked up $4,289 of free meals paid for by third-party groups like the Georgia Bankers Association and the Congressional Institute.
Maybe his colleague Rep. Trey Radel will come to his defense, being the guy who voted to drug test welfare recipients and all the while being addicted to cocaine.
There really is no end to the hypocrisy. Maybe that’s why it’s #1 on MeetingBoy’s list of trends for 2014.
