Ron Paul

Ron Paul Texas mugshot

Dishonorable Mention

Rep. Ron Paul illegally pocketed thousands of taxpayer dollars by double-billing his travel expenses to the House and either his campaign or one of several libertarian nonprofits.

Over the course of a decade, the Texas Republican routinely billed his member’s representational allowance for travel receipts while receiving reimbursements in identical amounts from either his campaign or one of a handful of libertarian nonprofits, including one where the mother-in-law of one of his daughters was treasurer. After an audit, one group found that Rep. Paul owed a $20,000 refund for double-billed expenses.

  • Twelve-term member of Congress representing Texas’ 14th district
  • Double-billed travel expenses to his member’s representational allowance and either his campaign or one of several libertarian nonprofit groups
  • Appeared in CREW's Family Affair exposé
