To allow members of Congress and Hill aides to attend their annual fundraising golf tournaments free of charge, Washington’s premier partisan clubs get ethics waivers from the House Ethics Committee, according to the clubs’ managers.
These clubs — the Capitol Hill Club and the National Democratic Club — are popular spots for political fundraisers and members, aides and lobbyists sit on their boards of directors.
A ticket to the Capitol Hill Club’s “Annual Republican Leadership Tournament,” held today at the Belle Haven Country Club in Alexandria costs $3,000 for a foursome.
