search on HON. SEAN P. DUFFY
It's only this quarter, and some of q4 last year, travel expenses for the two periods are close to $36K, but include a lease for almost $16K. Mileage (and taxi/parking/tolls) for Duffy alone doesn't even come close to $2K ($1358.04) in that time period. I didn't go back an look at the numbers for the first 3 quarters of 2011 but based the fact that the article Uppity quotes from Thinkprogress
doesn't actually state anything about personal mileage, I'm betting Duffy never comes close to claiming that many miles.
Now if you want to talk about why a 1st term congressman who campaigned on fighting government waste is spending $16K to lease a car, like Thinkprogress does; or if you question his over all staff spent $35,478.77 on travel in that time period, I'd say you have a fair point.
