Why is Rep. Frederica Wilson going to Africa? Is she paying the bill, or is the taxpaying public paying for her vacation?
Not to totally pick on Rep. Wilson,but it isn’t in the job description of a legislator to travel the world on tax dollars.
The executive branch of our government such as Secretary of State John Kerry has the duty to travel the globe, investigate and negotiate treaties. They then bring the findings back to the legislature for action. The taxpaying public was plain duped into paying for our legislators free trips abroad.
No doubt Boko Haram is a terrible, terrorist organization. But outside of taking up Rep. Wilson's time and efforts from one of the poorest constituency districts in America, let alone South Florida, they are not a threat to America or Americans.
Never miss a local story.
