(Rob Andrews) South Jersey congressman spent $9,000 from campaign funds on donor's wedding
A three-night stay at a five-star hotel in Edinburgh, Scotland, for a wedding: $7,725.

A set of china from Bloomingdales for the bride and groom: $463.

Cab rides, meals, tips and airline baggage fees: $953.

Expensing it to your campaign account: Priceless.

In June, U.S. Rep. Rob Andrews (D-1st Dist.) and his family visited Edinburgh for a wedding part of a larger European vacation. There, Andrews, his wife and two teenage daughters stayed at the Balmoral Hotel in the center of town, which bills itself as a "luxury hotel in the true sense of the word." The price was indeed five-star: Two rooms for three nights cost $7,725.
