GOBBLE, GOBBLE

Two state legislators from Oakland County were among the top 10 recipients of free food and drinks purchased by lobbyists in 2016. Ravenous representatives Klint Kesto (R-Commerce) and Mike Webber (R-Rochester, Rochester Hills) received more than $5,500 in free grub last year at the trough of those peddling influence. Kesto, received the second most ($3,266) in free food and beverages, while Webber tallied $2,405, making him the sixth hungriest recipient of freebies. The findings were part of a recently released report issued by the Michigan Campaign Finance Network, an independent organization that tracks the role of money in Michigan politics. Craig Mauger, executive director of the organization, said the average American household spent about $3,008 on food away from home in 2015.
