Raising Green on the Greens

Today's Daily News reports that in 2006, New York State politicians spent $1.7 million in campaign contributions on golf, shelling out big bucks on greens fees, caddie fees, staff tips, and golf pros.

Most of the politicians claimed these outings were campaign fundraisers, but the DN points out that several, including Senate Majority Leader Bruno and Deputy Majority Leader Skelos, appear to be spending campaign cash on regular visits to the country club.

Isn't it time for stricter laws against employing contributions for personal use?
