Campaign Contributions going to the Relatives of Congressmen

Family members of US Congressmen are being given money directly out of campaign contributions and public action committees, claims Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.  A 347 page report released by the group shows that over $5 million in campaign contributions have gone to family trips, paying babysitters, and high salaries for family members.  While these activities may be legal they certainly are unethical.  It gives the impression that these Congressmen are only interested in enriching themselves and their families, rather than leading the country in the right direction.
