Best of Air Pelosi's In-Flight Liquor Bills

You may have heard about "Air Pelosi", the friends-and-family shuttle service operating out of the Speaker's office. The various liquor bills that were dredged up by Judicial Watch from Air Pelosi's many luxurious flights raise two questions:

• Since when did Congress get so loaded while off duty?

• And how in the heck do they get such preferred pricing? I know how we can address the entire damn budget deficit: just have Congress retail liquor at these prices!

Why do Congress Critters have access to AAFES facilities? I thought that was one of my benefits as a military retiree.

Good point. I was just getting ready to bring this up myself. AAFES CONUS (Continental US) is only available to active duty service members, National Guard and Reserves, and military retirees. As a DA Civilian, I am not authorized to utilize AAFES or DECA (Commissary) facilities. This should be investigated.

Ah the Real Perks of Congress. Enjoying tax-free booze at the taxpayers expense while being flown from one end of the country to the other. Outrage from her California constituants in 3...2...1... (crickets)

Easy. Military personnel on the flight are responsible for the restocking. They use AAFES. Note that at least one of those receipts was from Ramstein AFB...
