https:\/\/www.factcheck.org\/2010\/03\/pelosis-party-plane\/Q: Has Nancy Pelosi spent $100,000 on food, booze and "partying" during her air travel?A: No. Pelosi\u2019s congressional delegations do eat well and drink pricey alcohol. But the costs are not as high as critics claim, and they\u2019re comparable to those of her Republican predecessor, Dennis Hastert.FULL QUESTIONI have received e-mails with links to Web sites that report that Nancy Pelosi has spent $101,000 at taxpayers\u2019 expense on booze and food while traveling by plane back and forth to California from Washington, D.C. I haven\u2019t been able to find anything that debunks this. Do you know if it is true?FULL ANSWERThe conservative group Judicial Watch obtained 2,000 pages of receipts and expense reports for speaker travel under the Freedom of Information Act. The group says these demonstrate Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi\u2019s \u201cboorish demands for military travel\u201d are \u201cmore about partying than anything else.\u201d Based on that, the conservative WorldNetDaily ran an eye-popping but inaccurate headline that said, "Taxpayers pay $101,000 for Pelosi\u2019s in-flight \u2018food, booze.\u2019 " Claims of Pelosi\u2019s extravagant liquor bills spread from there through any number of blogs and chain e-mails, which sometimes attribute the in-flight costs of entire delegations to Pelosi alone on her flights between Washington and her district in California.But Judicial Watch is wrong in several respects. Our examination of the documents reveals that Judicial Watch verstated the amount of money spent on \u201cin-flight expenses\u201d for Pelosi\u2019s congressional delegations, or CODELs. Furthermore, Judicial Watch, a watchdog group that describes itself as "conservative," failed to compare Pelosi\u2019s costs with those of the previous speaker, Republican Dennis Hastert, even though the Air Force handed over documents covering CODELs that he led, as well as those led by Pelosi. And the fact is that Hastert\u2019s travel, as represented in Judicial Watch\u2019s own documents, was comparable to Pelosi\u2019s.
