Local NBC station exposes Kingston’s taxpayer-paid meals

Special to SEGAZINE

Several weeks after Rep. Jack Kingston (R-GA) generated controversy for suggesting low-income students ought to sweep cafeteria floors to learn “there’s no such thing as free lunch,” local Georgia NBC station WSAV 3 revealed all the “free lunches” Kingston receives on the taxpayer dime.

According to the Savannah-based station, Kingston and his staff have expensed $4,182 worth of business meals. Having traveled to four continents as a member of the House Appropriations Committee, the congressman has also racked up $24,313 in per diem allowances which include midday meals. All of these come at taxpayer expense.
