    This the same trip where he posted a pic of himself and not the team that he so wanted to support?? Bore me less.

    Just shy of $2500 for two nights’ accommodation – where on earth did he stay, Grenada’s version of the St Regis?

      An Expedia search reveals only one hotel near St. George that charges over $1,000 per night

  3. Question says:

    In Grenada it’s quite difficult to spend more than $400 for a hotel room. He either demanded a two-bedroom Presidential Suite, or he got ripped off. Either way, this is a disgusting waste of taxpayer funds. He should be made to pay it himself.

      Agree 100%

      Him claiming $2500 for 2 nights on an island that has no accommodations costing this much clearly shows that these expense reports are total crap. We can no longer trust what these guys post. Lots of lies being told here.

      Keep lapping it up and voting GREEN though, it’s working so well.
