Tim Scott repays AEI for pal’s meals

The Loop reported last month on a potentially awkward-sounding trip the congressman took to the lovely beach-side resort. He brought his mother (whose meals AEI could pay for under House rules) and a friend, a manager and buyer for a Charleston lingerie shop (whose meals the think tank isn’t supposed to spring for).

According to Legistorm, Scott filed an amended form indicating he repaid $371 for the meals of his pal, Zee Patel, who works for Bits of Lace, an upscale boutique.

We wonder how many fancy negligees that would buy.
