Description

Inside Edition's report on “Congressional Rents” is an unprecedented investigation that uncovered case after case of US Congressmen overpaying rent for their congressional offices to fat-cat campaign donors. The rent money comes from their Member's Representation Allowance (MRA) which is funded by tax dollars. Reporters and researchers for Inside Edition exhaustively examined tens of thousands of documents, including Secretary of State corporate records, Federal Election Commission campaign donor databases, and the Statement of Disbursements for the US House of Representatives to help uncover the shady leases for their congressional offices.
