Mary Landrieu has been under fire for weeks.

Why? She billed taxpayers for multiple private air charters to attend campaign fundraisers, which is obviously a violation of federal law.

After multiple reports exposed Landrieu's abuse of taxpayer dollars, the embattled senator promised a full investigation and audit — overseen by herself, of course.

The Advocate reported about the situation last month:

Moving to defuse a simmering controversy over her use of taxpayer-financed charter flights for campaigning — a violation of federal law — U.S. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., said today she has ordered a review of all her air travel in her 18 years in the Senate to make sure no other trips were paid for improperly. ... A Landrieu spokesman said the review will look at all payments from her office account for commercial and charter flights dating to when she took office in January 1997, to make sure the trips were for official Senate business — a legal use of the money. The results of the review will be released publicly by the time the Senate returns on Sept. 8 from its August recess, the spokesman said.
That self-imposed deadline came and went, without any update from Landrieu. This morning, after giving Landrieu all week to keep her promise, the RNC released its own audit detailing her abuse of taxpayer dollars.

The RNC report details taxpayer-funded flights that correspond with donations received on the same day of her travel — dating back to the year 2000. These suspicious flights are listed below:

  • Exhibit A - 5/31/2000: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Alexandria May 31, 2000, At A Cost Of $1,531.88

  • Exhibit B – 3/16/2002 – 3/17/2002: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Ruston On March 16, 2002, At A Cost Of $1,343.75. Landrieu Then Took A Chartered Flight From Monroe To Many Destinations On March 17, 2002 At A Cost Of $1,290.00. NOTE: According To Google Maps, Ruston Is Less Than A 45 Minute Drive From Monroe. (Google Maps, Accessed 8/15/14)

  • Exhibit C – 4/3/2002 – 4/4/2002: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Deridder And Lafayette On April 3, 2002, At A Cost Of $1,241.09. Landrieu Took A Round-Trip Flight From Baton Rouge To Lafayette, Ruston, Mansfield, And Alexandria On April 4, 2002, At A Cost Of $2,350.93.

  • Exhibit D – 7/22/2005: Landrieu Took A Round-Trip Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Opelousas And Slidell On July 22, 2005, At A Cost Of $950.00.

  • Exhibit E – 8/21/2005: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From Monroe To Alexandria On August 13, 2005, At A Cost Of $1,100.00. NOTE: According To Google Maps, Colfax, Lecompte, Marksville, Winnfield, And Natchitoches Are Less Than A One Hour Drive From Alexandria. Landrieu Took A Round-Trip Chartered Flight From Houma To Slidell And Lafayette On August 21, 2005, At A Cost Of $1,325.00.

  • Exhibit F – 8/25/2005: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From Slidell To Lake Charles, Jennings, And Baton Rouge On August 25, 2005, At A Cost Of $1,655.00.
    NOTE: According To Google Maps, Plaquemine And White Castle Are Within 45 Minutes Of Baton Rouge.

  • Exhibit G – 5/18/2008: Landrieu Took A Round-Trip Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Monroe On May 18, 2008, At A Cost Of $2379.88. NOTE: According To Google Maps, Rayville Is Less Than A 30 Minute Drive From Monroe.

  • Exhibit H – 8/14/2008: Landrieu Took A Chartered Flight From New Orleans To Shreveport And Baton Rouge On August 14, 2008, At A Cost Of $2365.69. NOTE: According To Google Maps, Plain Dealing Is Less Than A 45 Minute Drive From Shreveport.

  • Mary Landrieu billed taxpayers nearly $15,000 for these flights. The payoff for her campaign? $136,627. Sounds like quite a deal.

    Our flight crew has been making sure that Senator Landrieu is getting the type of service she has grown accustomed to while "Air Mary" remains grounded. In light of this audit, it sounds like it will remain grounded for a while.

    The Employee Health Care Protection Act, which Dr. Bill Cassidy sponsored, passed the House in a bipartisan vote today.

    The bill liberates small businesses and their employees from Obamacare, allowing them to keep their health care plans — instead of letting the federal government cancel them. In addition to safeguarding American workers' health care plans, the Congressional Budget Office said Cassidy's bill would lower the deficit by a whopping $1.25 billion.

    Dr. Cassidy released a statement after the bill passed today:

    The Employee Health Care Protection Act is about keeping a promise and doing right by the American people. It is a bi-partisan bill that allows American workers, if they choose, to keep their employer-sponsored healthcare plan that they depend on for healthcare security. Let’s keep the promise to middle class workers and ensure that if they like their healthcare plan, they can keep it.
