The Fumo Legal Defense Fund

State Sen. Vince Fumo, under federal investigation for corruption, used $900,000 of taxpayer’s dollars for his legal defense (in addition to $300,000 of campaign contributions) the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. They have justified this as appropriation of public funds as needed for “representation of the Senate office in an aspect of the investigation related to Senate duties.”

Just one more example of how your lawmakers think they are entitled to your money for whatever they need.
