The political action committee linked to the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) disbursed hundreds of thousands of dollars of its funds on luxury resorts, upscale restaurants, nightclubs, and tickets to Vegas events throughout the last election cycle, Federal Election Commission filings show.
The CHC BOLD PAC, the fundraising arm of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, came under fire this week for a delegation trip to a seaside resort in San Juan, Puerto Rico, during the government shutdown where its members mingled with more than 100 lobbyists, attended a viewing of the Broadway show “Hamilton,” and met with Puerto Rican officials.
The article goes on to state the following:
The trip was met with condemnation from a number of Republican leaders.
“Democrats in Congress are so alarmed about federal workers not getting paid they’re partying on the beach instead of negotiating a compromise to reopen the government and secure the border,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said of the trip.
“While [President Donald Trump] is in DC working to resolve the government shutdown and secure our border, Democrats are hitting the beach and partying with lobbyists,” added Ronna McDaniel, chair of the Republican National Committee.
Luxury getaways are not new to members of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, who spent hundreds of thousands on such trips in recent years.
The BOLD PAC experienced a record fundraising haul during the 2018 election cycle, pulling in $9.5 million in contributions. Rep. Tony Cárdenas (D., Calif.), who chairs the PAC, attributed the influx of cash to President Donald Trump’s policies.
