Brief Executive Summary
From the Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs, the Subcommittee on Federal Spending Oversight and Emergency Management led by Senator Rand Paul issued a weekly waste report looking at the funding of a modern jazz group named the Soul Rebels. The report looks into the Department of State using $50,000 of taxpayer money to fund the Soul Rebels' trip to a jazz festival in Istanbul. The Subcommittee finds the Soul Rebels were already on an European tour and also that the Soul Rebels are already an established music group, so the funding was unnecessary on several counts.
