Just paid cash for a Million dollar plus house in DC. (H/t Daniel Bice)
For someone who vowed to serve as a “citizen legislator,” U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson certainly is acting like a seasoned Washington insider.
First, Johnson hired a former lobbyist as his chief of staff. Then he announced that he was running for a top GOP post in the Senate and created a leadership fund.
Now it turns out that Johnson has paid cash for a $1 million-plus D.C. house within walking distance of his Senate office.
No sleeping on a cot in his legislative office for this first-term Republican.
Actually, the brick town house – guaranteed to “knock your socks off” in the words of the real estate agent – was bought by The Ronald H. Johnson and Jane K. Johnson Irrevocable Endowment Trust.
Johnson spokeswoman Mary Vought said her boss and his wife pay rent to the family trust to stay in the 2,430-square-foot house with 3 bedrooms and 3½ bathrooms.
Yeah, he is one of us!

I wonder if he has a guest room there for his mentor Dick Morris?
