Recent actions by Senator Claire McCaskill (D-Mo.) are another in a long line taken by out-of-touch Democrats. According to the Federal Aviation Administration, McCaskill took steps to make her private plane untraceable to the public. What are you hiding Senator?
During her last election, McCaskill received sharp and well deserved criticism of using taxpayer dollars to fund her frequent flying on a private jet she co-owned with her husband and other investors. She returned nearly $88,000 to the Treasury Department to cover all costs associated with her outlandish flights.
Despite this criticism, after she won the election McCaskill and her husband purchased a new private plane, a 2009 Pilatus PC-12/47E. As previously mentioned, in documents uncovered through FOIA, McCaskill has taken steps to make her plane untrackable to the public. Her office refuses to answer questions as to why this has happened. If the taxpayers are paying for her flights, they deserve to know where she is going. If the Senator is using the plane for official business, the taxpayers have a right to know.
According to Fox News, prior to 2013, people had to show “certified security concern” to block their flights, but the Obama Administration rolled back that requirement to make blocking quite simple.
Senator McCaskill needs to answer to the questions surrounding this recent suspicious activity.
