Kerry Used Presidential Campaign Funds To Pay Off Parking Tickets...

Quote:

WASHINGTON - Sen. John F. Kerry tapped campaign funds for Red Sox tickets and to pay nearly $300 in overdue Boston parking tickets in March, records show.

    Kerry's Senate campaign committee wrote a $287 check to the City of Boston Parking Clerk on March 31, 2005. The Bay State senator listed ``travel expense'' as the purpose for the expenditure.

    Kerry leased a car for campaign-related travel in Massachusetts that was cited for about a half-dozen parking tickets in Boston.



    Most of the tickets were issued in October and November 2003 and not paid until more than 15 months later in March 2005 after accruing penalty fees.

    ``They were leftover tickets we only found out about when we closed out the lease,'' Kerry spokeswoman Jenny Backus said. ``The car was used for the Senate campaign by staffers and volunteers.''

    Kerry, meanwhile, used presidential campaign funds for a $3,150 tab for Boston Red Sox tickets in July when he threw out the first pitch at Fenway Park before the Democratic National Convention.

    A Federal Election Commission spokesman said congressmen are entitled to pay for parking tickets and other expenses from their campaign funds as long as they were ``campaign-related.''

    Other members of the Bay State congressional delegation also reported some novel spending this year.

    U.S. Rep. Stephen Lynch (D-South Boston) spent $1,231 on makeup services during a two-week stretch in March, according to his most recent FEC report.

    ``Congresssman Lynch had a pretty intensive round of TV interviews due to the baseball steroid hearings, the Big Dig hearings and his Iraq trip,'' Lynch spokesman Matt Ferraguto said.

Well if those tickets would have been found out, and used against him..like say

"OMG HES IRRESPONSIBLE..HE HAS PARKING TICKETS...NEXT ON FOX"

Then I think him paying them off with that money is all good.

Seriously, you ever been to Boston? People there drive crazy. For police to single your car out of all the other crazy drivers not once, not twice, but six times, I can't imagine how bad you'd have to be.

I hate the piece of shit but this is fucking stupid. Every contracting job in NYC has a budget item for parking tickets. Sometimes it's cheaper, more convenient and cost effective to just say fuck it and take a ticket. Or, you might get away with it. This aint even a tempest in a teacup. It's a ripple in a thimble.

Payed for parking tickets accrued while on the SENATE campaign with money from his PRESIDENTIAL campaign fund?

I think you drew from the wrong account bucko..

Shame, though. I was hoping they were personal tickets and he was gettin put through the wringer for embezzlement of a few hundred bucks. That'd right up just make my day.

Please. Do you really think any memeber of congress is more or less ethical based upon their party affiliation? Thats kinda like walking down death row in a prison and pointing out the people that were a bit less violent in the murders they commited.
