C Street Summer Fun

 C Street Summer Fun

The organization behind Capitol Hill’s notorious C Street house has been sending conservative congressmen overseas to pray with foreign leaders, reports Paul Singer in Roll Call.  Since 2000, the Fellowship Foundation spent over $100,000 on 13 of these foreign prayer trips. More than half the money went to Alabama’s Robert Aderholt (R, AL-4), who took six trips to bring Jesus to leaders of countries like Sudan, Serbia, and Kazakhstan.  Other C Street trippers:  Reps. Mike Doyle (D, PA-14), Frank Wolf (R, VA-10) , Joe Pitts (R, PA-16) and John Carter (R, TX-31) and Senators John Ensign (R-NV) and Tom Coburn (R-OK). Both Senators have lived at the C Street house; Congressman Doyle still does.

The Fellowship (aka The Family ) subsidizes the C Street house that is the DC home of conservative Christian politicians and their sex scandals . The Office of Congressional Ethics recently dismissed a complaint that conservative congressmen are living at the Capitol Hill townhouse at below market rates. No word on the similar complaint filed with the Senate Ethics Committee.
