Rep. Devin Nunes used political donations to pay for nearly $15,000 in tickets to Boston Celtics basketball games as well as winery tours and lavish trips to Las Vegas, according to reports from the Federal Election Commission and two nonpartisan watchdog groups.

I guess I can’t completely object to his misuse of political donations?

Stay away, Nunes. You're the worst.

I object to your bias in describing it as a 'misuse'. Gotta keep that money rolling in so we can afford this payroll.

Am I the only one to think that Nunes is a celtic fan is a bit unlikely?  He was born and raised in central california.  Maybe the tickets were for people like this?

cough Jeffrey J. Kimbell cough....

There are more than enough other fans to fill the gaps :)

Despite growing up in his central California district, the congressman has reportedly been a Celtics fan since high school. According to a profile of Nunes in the Los Angles Times last year, he spent his teen years “adoring Larry Bird,” even though his home state has four NBA teams. Nunes retweeted a CelticsBlog article last year suggesting that Bird was the reason for his Celtics fandom.

Are you on the forums, Devin?  Are you Greenback?

We’re in the political discussion sub forum — I started the thread here for a reason.

I guess this is a very disturbing development- not so much in the front of funds mismanagement, but that he is a Celtics fan.... 😬

He basically dropped $15K in one day on a huge party:

Quote
On June 19, the PAC's expenditures included nearly $5,000 spent at six wineries in Paso Robles and Santa Margarita, both outside his district in California, and about $5,000 to Gold Coast Limousine the same day.

Also listed was a hotel charge for $4,409 at Sea Venture, a hotel about 20 miles from Santa Margarita and located right on the beach.

The way i see it, he had donors and others he wanted to court stay at a lavish hotel, picked up in fancy limos, driven to a bunch of winery for lots of wine drinking....

I don't know about you all, but I'm starting to think I'm in the wrong business....


Celtics fan for life.

I have a lot of respect for Congressman Nunes, he is uncovering a lot of the deep state corruption.  Great to see he is a fan of the Green.

Would've LOVED for him to uncover the Deep State from the 2010 NBA Finals.......................
