Moran was biggest spender in Senate

Sen. Jerry Moran, R-Kan., spent a higher percentage of his congressional office budget this past fiscal year (99.4 percent) than any other senator, USA Today reported. Moran had spent all but $18,000 of his almost $3 million annual office budget through Sept. 30, according to Senate financial records. Moran’s spokeswoman said Moran spends that much because he travels back and forth to Kansas nearly every weekend. “Sen. Moran’s commitment to staying connected with Kansans is second to none,” Garrette Silverman said. USA Today noted that Moran helped found the Senate Tea Party caucus, which is “dedicated to cutting government spending and reducing the federal debt.” Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., ranked 33rd, having spent 93.9 percent of his office budget.
