It never fails. A Democrat is elected to local office–and suddenly they are living the high life.
Often on the taxpayer’s dime.
One liberal mayor was caught flying First Class using tax dollars. You won’t believe her excuse.
From Fox News:
New Orleans Mayor LaToya Cantrell (D) is facing scrutiny over her demand for luxury travel in the name of safety, all at the cost of taxpayers…
Cantrell defended her sky-high travel costs, releasing a statement saying, “My travel accommodations are a matter of safety, not of luxury. As all women know, our health and safety are often disregarded, and we are left to navigate alone.”
“Anyone who wants to question how I protect myself just doesn’t understand the world Black women walk in,” she continued.
Wow. This Democrat charging taxpayers tens of thousands of dollars to fly First Class.
When she was challenged over it, she dared to play the gender and race cards!
LaToya Cantrell took numerous trips over the last year. Those flights cost $2,300 to D.C., $2,800 to Miami, and $9,800 to Switzerland.
And she took a First Class flight to France, costing New Orleans residents $17,000.
In total, she spent nearly $30,000 on First Class flights.
I wonder how many of these trips were for actual work? Not sure why the mayor of New Orleans needs to fly to France and Switzerland.
Let’s not forget a mayor is a public servant. Which means she should be looking for ways to save residents’ hard-earned money.
Instead, she is living the high life flying First Class.
Her brilliant excuse? That a woman of color isn’t “safe” flying in coach.
Really? Last time I checked, coach was on the same plane as First Class. How is being in the front of the plane (drinking fancy drinks and enjoying fancy meals) safer than being in coach?
This woman has the audacity to fleece New Orleans residentsand claiming she has a right to it.
But this is nothing new. Democrats have used the “victim mindset” for years to seemingly con constituents.
They claim they are representing working and low-income folks. But how often has that cash flowed back into the people’s hands?
Not very often. Instead, women like Cantrell get to jet off to Switzerland on the taxpayer’s dime.
And she’s not even sorry about it.
- New Orleans mayor was outed for flying First Class on taxpayer funds.
- She claimed she needed to fly First Class out of safety concerns.
- Cantrell claimed a woman of color is not safe in coach.
- Her trips cost tens of thousands of dollars.
