Groceries for Votes?

Capitol Ideas is reporting that state Rep. Peter J. Daley (D-California) is using his unvouchered expenses funded pay raise to hand out grocery gift certificates to senior citizens living in his district. Isn't that like robbing Peter to pay Paul?

A year or so ago I read about a small town mayor who used to take the money he received for officiating at weddings and give it to local charities. He had to stop because it was ruled a violation of some political finance regulation.
