Your tax dollars at work...

Two Republican members of Congress are calling out the Department of State for allegedly trying to influence the upcoming election in Israel using American tax dollars.
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Rep. Lee Zeldin (R-New York) sent a letter informing the State Department about information they have received about behind-the-scenes partisan political activity by President Barack Obama, who they believe has "launched a political campaign" to defeat the Likud Party's Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. In the letter sent to Secretary of State John Kerry last week, the two U.S. lawmakers also bring up allegations that American tax dollars are being used to pay for the campaign. [ECS]
