MOST TRANSPARENT ADMIN: Obama Now Hiding Massive Cost Of Vacations

Published on February 22, 2014

In the wake of President Obama’s 23rd vacation, Judicial Watch estimated the first family has milked the public trough for more than $18 million in hotel and resort expenses, security costs, car rentals and airfare. And the “most transparent administration in history” has been anything but cooperative, the Washington Examiner reported last week.

The Washington, D.C.-based watchdog group has been forced to file a stream of Freedom of Information Act requests because of White House stonewalling.

“The Obama administration has simply stopped voluntarily producing information about the costs of travel,” Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton told Secrets, according to the Examiner. “It is radio silence. They are in cover-up mode.”

On Jan. 13, Fitton’s group sued the Secret Service and the Department of Defense for details on how much taxpayer money was spent in 2013 on seven lavish Obama trips to global destinations, including Spain, Ireland and Africa.
