Rep. Devin Nunes reportedly used political donations to pay for nearly $15,000 in tickets to Boston Celtics games.
The California Republican’s expenditures are contained in reports from the Federal Election Commission and two nonpartisan watchdog groups, The Fresno Bee says.
According to the reports Nunes used the money from his political action committee last year on three occasions to buy tickets and the PAC has shelled out about $42,741 since 2013 on catering, site rentals, hotels and meals in Las Vegas.
The Bee says on June 19, the PAC’s expenditures included nearly $5,000 spent at six wineries in Paso Robles and Santa Margarita, both outside his district in California, and about $5,000 to Gold Coast Limousine the same day.
"Your paper is a joke to even bring these issues up or raise these issues," Nunes told The Bee.
The newspaper said PACs such Nunes’s are supposed to be used to allow members of Congress to donate money to other political campaigns.
