Reminiscent of the scandal in which she used military aircraft as her personal taxi, Nancy Pelosi stuck it to U.S. taxpayers on her way out as House Speaker with a lavish Hawaiian vacation featuring secret service and local police motorcades financed by Americans.

The famously corrupt California Congresswoman spent her last days as Speaker at an exotic resort in Konas historic settlement of Kaupulehu, according to a Hawaiian newspaper that's working to get figures on local police and secret service costs. Not surprisingly, the feds refuse to provide details on Pelosis security detail and the Hawaii Police Department claims it cant release the number of officers it dedicated to Pelosis motorcade, whether they were pulled from other duties or paid overtime.
