Nunes used political donations to buy $15K Celtics tickets, lavish dinners, report finds

Leadership PACs are separate pots of money from a campaign fund intended to help politicians strategically finance other candidates' campaigns. But in recent years, leadership PACs have increasingly been used to pay for lavish trips, meals and hotel stays.

A report published Thursday by watchdog groups Issue One and the Campaign Legal Center details the luxury spending.
