Swearing-in Parties

Pittsburgh Tribune-Review articles reviews legislator expenses for their swearing-in day parties, including who charged the meals to taxpayers, and who didn’t: “Rep. Jim Marshall, R-Beaver County, said he bought hoagies and his wife made cookies for the event he hosted in his office Jan. 2. The Marshalls used powdered orange drink for beverages.” That’s my kind of party–no fancy salads or vegetables, and one my taxes didn’t pay for.
