Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul says he will send a $600,000 check to the U.S. Treasury, returning the part of his operating budget as a senator that was not spent. Paul made the announcement at press conference in Kentucky on Wednesday. According to a press release from Paul’s office, the sum is over 20 percent of the total operating budget. Last year, he returned $500,000 worth of unspent funds to the Treasury. Jesse Jackson Jr. claimed he also returned 750,000 to the Treasury, correction: the money went to their personal treasury, the one in their mattress.
