In this, Nov. 10, 2008 file photo, former Congressman Mark Foley, R-Fla., is interviewed in New York. Members of Congress can pretty much do whatever they want with leftover campaign cash when they leave office except use it for personal expenses. In Foley’s case, he has given away about $360,000 since 2010, when he began remerging into public life. The amount is roughly what his $1.2 million has earned through investments.
