Mark Warner Looks Down on his Constituents

So this broke recently. The richest man in the U.S. Senate, who also happens to work and live in a DC adjacent state, spent over 30 grand of taxpayer money flying to Southwest Virginia.

"I spent about THIS much, to fly about THIS far,"
I would be remiss not to point out the irony of a wealthy, EPA-loving businessman from Northern Virginia flying a chartered jet to a hard hit, coal dependent area where unemployment hovers around 9% with the audacity to tell them that he is on their side.

The hard campaigning months of September and October are fast approaching. Will the gentleman from Virginia be jetsetting?

Be careful, your expectations for responsibility and common sense may have shifted during flight.
