If you’re one of the hard-working American taxpayers who wonders what the Congressional Black Caucus spends all of their money on since they never seem to get anything done, we’ve got your answer.

The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (CBC PAC), which is the fundraising arm of the Congressional Black Caucus, has been caught spending funds on luxury resorts and hotels, expensive restaurants, and Broadway tickets, just to name a few of the lavish expenditures a recent review of campaign finance records revealed.

The CBC PAC claims its mission is to increase “the number of African Americans in the U.S. Congress” and to “support non-Black candidates that champion our interests, and promote African American participation in the political process-with an emphasis on young voters.”

However, it doesn’t appear that much of their funding is going towards this purpose.

According to the Free Beacon:

A $5,000 payment was made in January 2016 from the PAC to the Buccaneer Hotel located in St. Croix, Virgin Islands, one of the “world’s top 50 tropical resorts.”

Later, on March 21, 2016, the PAC made another payment to a resort in the Virgin Islands. This time, the money went towards a stay at the “one-of-a-kind” Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort and Spa also located in St. Croix. The Renaissance is situated “among the foothills of a lush tropical rainforest and only steps away from the pristine sands of Estate Davis Bay.”

The PAC spent $820 on taxicabs while in the Virgin Islands. More than $2,000 was spent at Sweeny’s St. Croix Tours in the town of Christiansted, considered “the most beautiful town in the West Indies.” Sweeny’s provides an open-air bus for its guests as they embark on safari tours of the island. More than $4,500 was also spent by the PAC on catering at Un Amore, an Italian restaurant.

The group’s largest expenses were made in New York and Washington, D.C.

The Conrad Hotel, a luxury all-suite hotel located in New York City, is a favorite of the PAC, which spent in excess of $40,000 at the venue throughout the last election cycle. Another favorite of the PAC, the St. Regis Hotel in Washington, D.C., that “plays home to dignitaries, royalties, and refined travelers alike,” received more than $18,000 in payments from the committee.

Other expenditures by the group included $6,576 on lodging at the 5-star Beverly Hills Hotel and $3,268 on lodging at the Waldorf La Quinta Hotel, Resort, and Spa located in La Quinta, Calif. The PAC spent $4,180 at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas and also spent $3,372 for “facilities rental” at Drai’s Rooftop Bar and Lounge at the Cromwell Las Vegas Hotel and Casino on the trip.

More than $2,000 was spent at the Fantasy Springs Resort Hotel in Indio, Calif., while $1,421 went towards rooms at the Harbor View Hotel at Martha’s Vineyard, among other hotels and resorts.

Tens of thousands also went toward fundraising event tickets and catering at high-end restaurants from the PAC.

The group paid $28,342 for “fundraising event tickets” to IHeartMedia Inc., a mass media corporation in San Antonio, Texas. The PAC put $22,112 toward “tickets and catering for a fundraising event” at the Staples Center, a sports arena, in Los Angeles, Calif. More than $25,000 was spent on catering at The Palm restaurant in New York City while $27,070 was spent on catering at Bobby Van’s Steakhouse in Washington, D.C. Thousands more were spent at other restaurants.

The group also spent $1,621 on Broadway tickets and another $5,960 at the Golden Theater in New York City.

Sounds like quite the sham to me…

    If this is illegal, and it is all so obvious, why have no charges been brought?It lookslike blatant misappropriation to me.

    The Congressional Black Caucus……AKA…..Congressional Black Clueless, have been too busy being sleazy, trashing the essence of what it means to be an elected official, serving illegal aliens and felons….

    ……..which means these individuals although Black like me, these charlatan elected officials, do not serve law abiding U.S. born Blacks either.

    YouTube: More Likely Treason, Incompetence and Greed by Other Blacks Keep Blacks Down and not White Supremacy

    YouTube: “Failure of Black Leadership and Black middle-class”

    CNN i-Report: “The Democratic Party has used the influence of Black Reverends, Pastors, etc., to win over virtually the entire Black voting electorate, to grease the palms of the sleazy and the greedy, While being of no Benefit to the Black community! ”

    CNN i-Report: “Indeed, Robert C. Gumbs. RE: The Black community Needs Honest Leaders, Your Message is Still True Today!” “We have to start to select our political leadership with more care, to make sure that these leaders will have our best interests at heart.” -Robert C. Gumbs

    CNN i-Report: “President Obama defies Congress and the Constitution to use his executive influence to serve illegal aliens, Planned Parenthood, etc., while playing games of deceit & trashing the oath of office & the Presidency when petitioned by deserving U.S. Citizens!”
