GOP Group Goes After Manchin For Using Taxpayer Money for Luxury Renovations


A Republican-aligned group aiming to strengthen the party’s majority in the Senate is targeting Democratic senator Joe Manchin (W.Va.) for costly renovations he made to the West Virginia governor’s mansion when he held the office a decade ago.

The new ad from Senate Leadership Fund, a Super PAC, is titled “Manchin’s Mansion” and references the $1 million in renovations Manchin ordered shortly after he was elected governor in 2005 that completely transformed the residence.

Manchin, according to reports, included the installation of a whirlpool tub, 12 new flat-screen TVs, and a complete renovation of the master bedroom, which was given a “sit-down steam shower and a walk-in closet.”

The mansion’s third floor was turned into a “game room and media center” equipped with eight high-definition TVs, including a 50-inch flat-screen, which at the time would have cost several thousand dollars. It was given two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a kitchen. The floor was also given a full bar and a storage area specifically for the purpose of storing liquor and beer. – READ MORE
