Rep. John Conyers’ campaign committee spent nearly $46,000 on travel and transportation during the first three months of 2009, a figure far higher than his colleagues among senior members of Congress. The campaign also bought $14,000 worth of Super Bowl tickets for the veteran lawmaker and campaign donors.
Conyers’ campaign says every item was a legitimate campaign expense. A Conyers campaign spokesman, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said each dollar was related to campaign requirements. But the level of spending on travel — nearly double the next-highest figure among more than 60 senior members of Congress — raises questions about whether the Detroit Democrat, chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, is mixing campaign business and personal affairs.
