Texas Representative Sheila Jackson Lee's campaign spent almost $10,000 on Super Bowl LI tickets and dropped another $$4,901 on "fundraising" at a local Italian restaurant, the Washington Free Beacon reports.
From Washington Free Beacon:
This year's Super Bowl between the Atlanta Falcons and New England Patriots, which took place on Feb. 5, was held at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas. Jackson Lee represents Texas's 18th Congressional District, which includes most of the central Houston area.Sounds like quite the party.
A tweet from former Tampa Bay Buccaneers player Ellis Wyms appears to show she attended the game:
Her Instagram also showed she was at NRG Stadium:
"The public deserves an explanation on why Super Bowl tickets were a campaign expense," Matthew Whitaker, president of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust told the Washington Free Beacon.
