In the United States, burning banknotes is prohibited under 18 U.S.C. § 333: Mutilation of national bank obligations, which includes "any other thing" that renders a note "unfit to be reissued".

Maybe it's not illegal because US notes aren't really money anyway?

If you give someone a fancy Latte (coffee) is this a bribe?


Actually one could argue against many gifts being bribes as they could be said to be of no real value. However, money, certainly has a value. That value is printed right on the currency. The gift itself could be argued against as a bribe, but the wrapping "paper" being money, most definitely is a bribe.

If anyone gave me a gift wrapped in anything less than $50 bills I'd throw it in their face.

So what's the problem?
You said it yourself that you can buy sheets of money at a marked up price.

So, if she bought it she can do with it what she wants I reckon.

Unless you want to be able to tell people what they can do with their own money I don't see an issue.

It's her money do what you want with it. Burn it for all I care, wipe with it or spend it at Starbucks.

Why are elected officials allowed to accept gifts anyway? Isnt't that illegal? Certainly should be.

You do realize that they can print any design on wrapping paper......don't you? If they were real dollar bills, she wouldn't have to cut them apart.Seriously......this post is so silly it wasn't even worth the bandwidth.

It is only wrapping paper with a dollar bill design printed on it. The gullibility factor of ATS just went up a few notches.

Absolutely, because cutting a piece of paper in half is a crime against humanity. I bet she even cuts the tags off mattresses. Shameful and undoubtedly criminal.

She is doing no different from any leftist elitist commie snob from Hollywood, or the Commie Democrat party. They all burn money like nobody needs it. I think the Republican is a non-issue. Its politicians period, and these filthy actors/actresses that play make-believe for a living and have an IQ that matches that of a bag of hammers.

In this post I shared:

she works for TWG whose largest client they lobby for is Boeing (and they are getting stinking rich), other services provided by TWG include legislative tracking, crisis management, "creating and managing coalitions," "writing legislative and regulatory language," conference organizing, political positioning, "Grassroots/Grasstops," issue campaigns and advertising, and media tracking.

other clients include Bridgestone/Firestone (famous for its disintegrating tires), Kodak, Microsoft, and the E-Fairness Coalition, along with various governments of the world. TWG is owned by the PR firm Ketchum. Ketchum is, in turn, part of the communications conglomerate the Omnicom Group.

Actually she was the Director of the Patient Centered Primary Care Collaborative (PCPCC) from 2006-11. There client is the Service Employees International Union. In fact this whole gift wrapping thing was celebrating the passing of Obama care.This was from an episode of ‘Real Housewives of DC’ . And they were celebrating with her union for helping to pass Obama care.Isnt it ironic the left is trying to use this as an example of those mean republicans life is so ironic sometimes.

Ok, so she gives the gifts with $1 bills as wrapping paper. It's just like somebody giving you $30 bucks and a gift. I don't see the big deal. It's a bit flamboyant, but is that a crime? Is it evil? Is she supposed to give her money to people she has no interest in giving it to? Nah man. Sorry.

I don't think lobbying is a good thing, in fact I think it's most of what's wrong with Washington today; but this just doesn't seem like a big deal at all to me.
