The ethics watchdog in U.S. has critized U.S. Vice President Mike Pence of misusing government travel to Colts game , just to stage a walkout of the game, a wasteful exercise in grandstanding too. The cost $250,000 is just an average. According to CNN, the aircraft Pence takes can cost over $42,000 an hour to operate. Add to it the cost of the extra police, the Secret Service arrangements, the inconvenience to the actual fans of the VP showing up to the game and all the extra security and traffic that causes.
FYI, VIPs everywhere waste taxpeyers money routinely.
