My U.S. House representative from Utah, Mormon Republican Chris Stewart, has spent some of his completely unearned and undeserved August vacation on a religious pilgrimage to Israel with his family. But he's sending out Facebook posts implying it's a fact-finding trip.

I sure hope none of this trip to Israel is being paid for by taxpayers. If it is, he needs to pay that money back.
