Respond Miss – Thompson Spends Contributions in Las Vegas, Miami

In regards to our post from yesterday, if the Clarion Ledger or others in the Mississippi media reviewed Bennie Thompson’s quarterly filing to look at his campaign travel expenses, they would see that the man who represents a district with one of the highest poverty rates in the country spent thousands of dollars in campaign contribution dollars on travel to locations like the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada; the Kingsmill Resort in Williamsburg, Virginia; the Myrtle Beach Marriott in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina; and the Fontainebleau Resort in Miami, Florida. That is just in the first four months of this year alone.
