That’s the equivalent of 291 queso burritos for House Majority Whip Kevin McCarthy. His office spent nearly $10,000 on food and beverage during the last quarter of 2012, and he’s not even among the biggest food-and-drink spenders. Reports show that John Boehner expensed $11,225 ($2,000 just on coffee) in the three-month period, and Nancy Pelosi spent $3,510. Some of the most frequent charges were at Whole Foods, Dunkin’ Donuts, and … P.F. Chang’s. Good to know taxpayer funds are going toward shitty Chinese food. [NYDN]
