Politico: Djou Hits the Checkbooks of Colleagues


Hawaii Republican Charles Djou is just two days into his House tenure, but he is wasting no time hitting up the checkbooks of his colleagues.

On Wednesday afternoon, Djou was the beneficiary of a $250-a-head “Welcome Reception” at the Capitol Hill Club headlined by House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio), House Minority Whip Eric Cantor (R-Va.), House GOP Conference Chairman Mike Pence (R-Ind.), National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Pete Sessions (R-Texas), and NRCC Recruiting Chairman Kevin McCarthy (R-Calif.).
