The Marriott stays I implied were directed to the leaders of the fundraising affairs.
You can dig the details on the matter of some years back, when the Assyrian Civic Club of Turlock had a fundraising for 'Garbia'. Some $25,000 were raised to be sent to that part of the world.
Guess what? Seven members of the Club went to Istanbul and Ankara, stayed in first class hotels and passed on what was left of this $25,000 after their expenses in both cities, to proper authorities in northern Iraq.
These are minor elements in our behavior. I do not take them seriously, because they occur at all the times.
Yes, travels I did for business reasons were obviously paid by the U.S. taxpayers. However, personal trips--numbering six times around the world, plus long stays in most of the cities where Assyrians reside, were furnished by this taxpayer, alone.
