Hooters.jpgIllinois' Democratic state representative Thaddeus Jones and his political committees have expensed a total of $8,800 spent at Hooters since '09, reports the Chicago SunTimes. House Republican Leader Jim Durkin's political committee spent a total of $158 at Hooters last month. When asked about the charges, he said: "I can guarantee you it wasn't me... It's embarrassing, but I let some staffers who volunteered use my [credit] card... I would hope they would go somewhere a little more wholesome." [SunTimes][Photo: chrisjtsel / Flickr]
