Swalwell Spent Over $30K in Campaign Funds on Limos, Meals, Alcohol

Rep. Eric Swalwell, D-Calif., spent more than $30,000 in campaign funds on limousine rides, high-end restaurants, luxury hotels and alcohol delivery in the second fiscal quarter, according to Federal Election Commission records reviewed by Fox News.

Additionally, more than $20,000 was spent at the Ritz-Carlton Half Moon Bay, where his wife has been director of sales since February 2015.

The charges include:

  • $566 on ”food & beverage” through the alcohol delivery service Drizly.
  • $1,151 on ”refreshments” from seven trips to Capitol Hill Wine and Spirits.
  • Nearly $4,400 at two California wineries on the same day for ”catering” and ”refreshments.”
  • More than $7,000 at luxury restaurants in Washington, D.C.

Hundreds of dollars were also spent at 1-800-FLOWERS. The report comes nearly two weeks after Business Insider published photos of Swalwell and Rep. Ruben Gallego, D-Ariz., posing shirtless while riding camels along the Persian Gulf in March 2020.

The 84,621.59 bill for that trip was picked up by the U.S.-Qatar Business Council, which describes itself as ”dedicated exclusively to enhancing the bilateral business relationship between the US and Qatar.”
