Who influences them?

Power Trips is a new analysis of privately funded Congressional travel from the Center for Public Integrity, along with Medill News Service and American Public Media.

The report, and news stories on it, is already resonating on Memeorandum, where it's the top story with several blog links. Lots of juicy details in these lists of most trips, most travel accepted, and most expensive trips. Hard to figure out why a Tom Bliley trip to London cost over $30,000 (and why Brown and Williamson paid it), or why Ileana Ros Lehtinen went to Israel and Korea, and Tom Delay just to Korea, financed by the Korea-U.S. Exchange Council (about $28,000 each). And Bob Wexler had to go to Kazakhstan?
