From Judicial Watch:
Judicial Watch announced today that it recently received expense records from the Department of Homeland Security revealing that Secret Service expenses for the Obama family vacation to Honolulu during December 2013-January 2014 cost taxpayers at least $316,698.03. These new expenses bring the total for the Hawaii Christmas vacation trip to $8,098,060.33. The Secret Service waited nearly two years to produce the requested numbers to Judicial Watch.
The heavily redacted records were obtained on December 28 in response to a January 6, 2014, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request. According to the records:
— $91,751.78 in car rental expenses were paid.
— $224,974.05 in accommodation expenses were paid to Cabana Girl, LLC and Paradise Luxury Rentals.
The documents are heavily redacted and the Secret Service is withholding 28 pages in their entirety.
Saying he was “eager to skip town” Obama took his family to Honolulu on December 20, 2013, for a 17-day Christmas vacation. As reported by The Washington Post.
