Sen. Ron Johnson Reportedly Used Tax Payer Money For Florida Travel

Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisconsin) denounced a report from the Milwaukee Journal Sentinal that claimed federal records showed he had been using taxpayer money to travel to his Florida vacation home.

“This isn’t journalism, it’s advocacy,” the senator said in a tweet. “It is a fully coordinated attack by the Dem Party and their allies in the media.”

“When the truth isn’t on their side, Dems and MSM media lie, distort, and engage in the politics of personal destruction,” Johnson added. “Wisconsin and America deserve better.”

Alexa Henning, a spokeswoman for the senator, clarified the report’s findings.

“The senator has always gone above and beyond to abide by Senate rules,” Henning said. “He has never been reimbursed for travel to visit family in Florida but is reimbursed for returning for official business to Washington, D.C.”

Johnson is up for reelection this fall in a highly competitive Senate race. He previously said he would retire after two terms, but announced his reelection campaign in January. It will likely be among the most closely watched races in November.
