Lugar Charged Taxpayers $50,000 To Pay For Hotel Since He Does Not Own A Home In Indiana. According to FOX News, The hundreds of pages of itemized travel expenses were passed along to Fox News. Among the findings offered by the party is that the six-term US Senator has spend almost $50,000 in travel expenses just visiting his home state. The expenses are necessary, in part, because Lugar has no home in Indiana. The Indiana Senator lives in the Washington DC suburb of McLean, Virginia. So, virtually every time Lugar stays in Indiana there's an added cost." [FOX News, 2/8/2012]

Between 1990 And 2011, At Least 325 Nights Were Paid For From Lugar's Office Budget. According to FOX News, "Another of the Indiana Democratic Party's findings puts a finer point on the issue. It says Lugar appears to have expensed 325 nights in Indiana over a 21-year period, from 1990 through 2011. The suggestion is that Lugar's time in the state has been limited to less than a year over the course of two-plus decades. The Lugar campaign says that suggestion is completely false.'(Senator Lugar) spends a quarter of the year, every year in the state,' says campaign spokesman David Wilkie. Wilkie notes from February 1st of 2011 and 2012, Lugar has spent 89-days in Indiana. And while Lugar is not 'domiciled' in Indiana, he does own a farm in the state which he still manages."
