It's Your Dime: Auto Show Junket Pt. 2


In February, Fox 29 Investigative Reporter Jeff Cole reported that some members of the State House Committee on Tourism spent a late January weekend in Philadelphia.

They enjoyed a few nights in a Philadelphia hotel room, meals, mileage reimbursement and a night at the "Black Tie Tailgate” Philly Auto Show gala – all for “free”.  Jeff revealed that taxpayers picked up the tab.

In the second part of this investigation, Jeff reveals just how much this weekend cost the taxpayers.

Jeff also goes looking for the names of the “sponsors” that Committee Chairman Thaddeus Kirkland says paid from some of the weekend’s activities and meals.
