Another $1 million spent to defend lawmakers in “Bonusgate”

As new legislators are coming to Harrisburg to be sworn in, Brad Bumsted reports that the Pennsylvania Senate Republicans have spent $1 million in legal fees (despite the number of lawyers they already employ) to get advice on responding to the Bonusgate investigation.  This now brings the legal fees spent by the PA House and Senate to $4.4 million. 

I hate to state the obvious, but spending millions of taxpayers’ dollars to defend the unethical/illegal spending of millions of taxpayers’ dollars is one reason we are facing a major budget deficit.
