A four-month investigation of members of the House and Senate revealed that lawmakers were accepting 'gifts of travel' worth tens of thousands of dollars although members of Congress are banned from accepting gifts worth more than $50. Using CAR, it was found that more than 4,800 trips-including golf trips, tickets to Wimbledon, and Swedish massage- totaling $14.4 million were paid by private groups. Surprisingly, not a single member of Congress was punished for 'abusing privately sponsored congressional trips'.
