Gwen Moore's Fancy Rides

  • Print

Congresswoman Gwen Moore apparently feels entitled to travel in style as she rails against the 1%.

According to campaign finance reports filed with the Federal Election Commission, Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Milwaukee) doesn’t mind spending her hard-earned campaign cash on chauffeurs and luxury service. In 2011 and 2012, Moore utilized limo companies and driver services in Milwaukee, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, and Boston totaling $6,136.

Listed below are the limousine and car service companies that Moore utilized as well as the itemized costs and dates of service. Each of these companies employs fleets that include limousines, but they companies also provide access to luxury sedans, SUVs, and even luxury hybrids....

Moore has often touted the poverty of the district she represents as well as her own experience as a single mother on welfare. In testimony before the House Ways and Means Committee just this year, she personally described the backwards incentive structure of welfare when she explained of a past instance where she begged an employer not to give her a raise because she would lose Title 20 daycare. Moore has also railed again Republicans at both the state and federal levels for “throwing the most vulnerable people under the bus.”
