10-16-06 - Steep drop in travel spending after congressional scandals behind the American Israel Education Foundation, which has emerged as the new top sponsor despite its close ties to the most powerful pro-Israel lobbying group in Washington.

The foundation spent $583,131, sponsoring 62 trips to Israel for lawmakers, their relatives and staff from July 2005 to July 2006.....while the organization is considered an independent entity, its affiliation with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee -- a lobby that is consistently ranked among the nation's most powerful interest groups -- blurs the lines between lobbies and nonprofit educational groups. Members of Congress are banned from accepting travel expenses from lobbyists...Founded in 1990, the education foundation shares its office space and phone number with AIPAC -- the lobbying group. In 2005, 17 of the foundation's directors were also vice presidents on the group's board, and one was the president.
And just why are these trips allowed in the wake of the lobbying scandal? The Israeli lobby, of course.
