The Congressional Black Caucus spends more money on their lavish lifestyles than they do on the whole purpose of a political action committee.
The whole purpose of the black caucus is to increase the number of African Americans in politics and reaching young voters. Looking at a report from the Washington Free Beacon, it seems that all they really do is spend the money on keeping up lavish lifestyles.
The Congressional Black Caucus PAC (CBC PAC) spends lavishly on upscale resorts and hotels, catering at exclusive restaurants, and on fundraising and Broadway tickets, according to a review of campaign finance records.
[…] The PAC spent hundreds of thousands throughout the 2016 election cycle on administrative expenses that included bills for lavish trips that were paid by the committee.
The committee put $283,100 total towards administrative expenses while $127,000 went towards fundraising purposes. The PAC contributed just $91,000 to federal candidates, according to overall data of the PAC from the Center for Responsive Politics.
This is the same black caucus that refused to allow a Hispanic member of congress to join. They spent 75%+ of their money on overhead, administrative and fundraising expenses including lavish resort spending.
