Paul Broun ended 2008 in the black — but barely

Roll Call, the D.C. newspaper, reports that, that after nearly running through his entire annual budget in the first six months of last year, U.S. Rep. Paul Broun (R-Athens) ended 2008 in the black.

He ended up with $52,000 to spare.

Wrote Roll Call:

According to House records, Broun’s office spent a svelte $190,000 in the last six months of 2008, a fraction of the combined $1.14 million in office expenses reported through the end of the second quarter in June….

House records show Broun’s office employed just 10 people on a full- or part-time basis between the Washington, D.C., and three district offices through the end of December. That total is half of the 20 full- or part-time workers listed in records ending in June 2008.

A Broun spokeswoman said Friday that the Georgia lawmaker expects to continue to issue frequent missives to constituents but that “the mistakes that were made, we’re going to ensure that they don’t happen again.”

Looks like Broun can operate his office in a conservative manner. I wonder how many congressmen ended with less than a $52,000 balance.
