    GOP Rep Runs Taxpayer-Funded Campaign-Style Ads On 'Out Of Control Spending'
    Justin Elliott | March 5, 2010, 2:56PM


    Rep. Peter Roskam (R-IL) is running campaign-style Web ads for a "tele-town hall" on "out of control spending" that are financed by taxpayer dollars -- and the ads were OKed as permissible under House rules.

    The ads, which you can check out one version of below, are set on an American flag background and include a red-white-and-blue button that reads "Congressman."

    The words "OUT OF CONTROL SPENDING" appear in large white letters on a blue background. The ads include a note saying they are paid for by official funds.

    They were approved by the Committee on House Administration, which is in charge of authorizing spending by members, according to Roskam Communications Director Dan Conston. (See the approval letter here.)

    "Clearly out of control spending and our massive national debt are relevant to our constituents," Conston tells TPMmuckraker.

    Conston says Roskam's office has bought Google ads for the last four or five tele-town halls conducted by the congressman. "We find it very valuable that we are reaching non traditional voters -- really disenfranchised voters, specifically younger voters," he says.

    Well he SAYS he is against, but obviously has no problem dipping his mitts in the honey pot!

    Those who vote for him are either OK with this, since he has an R after his name, or just don't care what he does, as long as he has an R after his name!

    I think that if these funds were Congress approved, therein lies the real issue.
