Michelle Obama Family Ski Trip to Aspen cost taxpayers at Least $83 Thousand
Remember back in February when Michelle Obama decided to pop off to Aspen, Colorado for a little ski trip? The pink slime media of course ignored it, but conservative sites covered it. Now we learn from Judicial Watch that the little jaunt off to Colorado cost tax payers AT LEAST $83,182.99. No wonder the pink slime media ignored it. Of course Mooch probably felt right at home in a liberal town like Aspen
Judicial Watch obtained the records pursuant to a May 31, 2012, lawsuit against both government agencies. Among the highlights from the records are:
The total cost for the Aspen ski vacation was at least $83,182.99.
The bill for the U.S. Secret Service, including accommodations at the Fasching Haus deluxe condominium and the Inn at Aspen, was $48,950.38.
The cost for the flight, per official DOD published hourly rates, was $22,583.70. Food and miscellaneous on-flight items cost $235.44. The cost for rental cars totaled $6,442.23.
Key details, including flight records for the Secret Service detail and the names of individuals who accompanied Mrs. Obama on the vacation, were redacted from the documents with the exception of two staffers. One was Meredith Koop, her personal assistant and style advisor, the other was her scheduler Kristen Jarvis.
