Foley rehab on taxpayers tab
The House Clerk's office says that the alcohol rehab program that Foley so publicly entered is paid for by taxpayers.
Salley Collins, a spokeswoman for the clerk's office, said the Florida Republican is covered by a "temporary continuation of coverage" program that is available to federal employees who leave or resign their positions, Capitol Hill Blue reported Monday.
"Most, if not all (lawmakers), have some coverage as far as rehabilitation for drug and alcohol," Collins said.
Rehab coverage? GOPers will be needing that soon enough if Dems win back Congress.
