Why would an Alabama Democrat take a super fancy and expensive trip to Europe?
I guess to take advantage of his position because, you know, he's a Democrat.
Senator Doug Jones has been caught red-handed taking an extremely luxurious trip and staying in two expensive hotels in Paris and London.
According to Fox News,
Sen. Doug Jones took a pricey European fundraising trip this winter where he stayed at two fancy hotels in London and Paris and paid for the luxe getaway with his campaign funds, records show.
The Alabama Democrat spent $487 to stay at the K+K Hotel Cayre in Paris, billed as “a beautiful historic building located in heart of Saint Germain Des Prés” that's within walking distance to Eiffel Tower and the Louvre. The hotel boasts "soundproofed" luxury rooms and private black marble bathrooms with underfloor heating.
The red-state politician up for reelection in November also spent $1,296 at the Baglioni Hotel in London, which describes itself as “one of the finest 5-star luxury hotels in London" that's located in "one of the most exclusive, elegant and celebrated parts of the city.”
Jones’ getaway included $1,164 spent on Eurostar rail travel and $533.66 for Easy Jet airfare in England, according to campaign reports that Jones filed with the Federal Election Commission on Feb. 20.
In all, his campaign paid for nearly $3,500 in European travel expenses dispersed in January, records Jones' himself disclosed to the federal government. The expenses were related to a fundraising trip Jones took in December to collect checks from well-off Americans living abroad and wanting to support Jones’ tough fight for re-election, Fox News has learned.
Doug Jones must know that his days are numbered because after this insane stunt he won't be winning against Jeff Sessions in Alabama. He already had crappy polls against Sessions but this will definitely hurt him in November clearing an extra seat for the Senate.
