The Gannett News Service investigates Senate campaign spending and finds that Federal Election Commission regulations have had limited effect; many incumbents continue to use contributions to enhance their private lifestyles. The series shows how Senators spend their huge campaign funds and how they often augment their salaries and benefits (provided by taxpayers,) by diverting contributions to their personal coffers. They use campaign funds to pay for fancy meals, vacations and clothing; and for leasing expensive cars and renting apartments.
