Some question Paulsen's free trips paid for by outside groups

More than three-and-a-half years after being sworn into office, Sen. Michael Bennet (D-Colo.) finally accepted his first privately financed trip, a four-day, three-night jaunt to Israel.

The American Israel Education Foundation sponsored Bennet's travel, totaling $12,685, an average of over $3,000 per day. Like many members of Congress on AIEF's sponsored visits to Israel, Bennet enjoyed business class airfare, meetings with Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu and tours of cultural sites.

Bennet also visited the Sea of Galilee around the one-year anniversary of when Rep. Kevin Yoder (R-Kan.) swam in the nude there. However, Bennet's itinerary shows that the senator arrived there around 1 pm the day he visited--not exactly a great time to be clandestinely skinny-dipping.
