ABC News: Ron Paul Spent $1 Million on Charter Flights

GOP presidential contender Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, just released a tax plan that seeks to cut $1 trillion from the federal budget, but he is less frugal with his own finances.

ABC News and the Center for Responsive Politics reported that Paul spent close to $1 million on charter flights, far outspending the rest of the GOP candidates. 


Rep. Michele Bachmann, R-Minn., spent $439,000 on charter fights, while former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney spent between $300,000 and $400,000. 

Texas Gov. Rick Perry reported spending only $272,000 on air charters, but he has recently faced questions about whether his campaign properly reimbursed Texas businessman Brian Pardo for using his Cessna Citation X business jet.

Former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., is the only candidate who has not reported spending on charter flights.
