Kanjorski Defends Gifts

The Citizen's Voice ran a story detailing lobbying activities and Congressman Paul Kanjorski. The question was raised as to whether or not it was inappropriate for Kanjorski to accept baseball tickets from Freddie Mac and not disclose that he received them.

In attendance at the game in question were Kanjorski, Jack Abramoff’s pal and disgraced former Congressman Robert Ney, Freddie Mac’s CEO, and four lobbyists.

Kanjorski defended the use of the tickets claiming that they fell below the $50 threshold for reporting.
