Congressman’s Foundation Has Money for Golf Outings, but Not for Scholarships

(CBS)  After repeated requests, Congressman Stephen Buyer finally agreed to sit down for a brief interview with CBS News Investigative Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson.

The subject: a small non-profit he founded in 2003. Who's paying for it and what are they getting in return?

Sharyl Attkisson: Where did the $25,000 to start the foundation come from?

Rep. Stephen Buyer: You know what? I was asked that question and I don't recall.

Attkisson: How can you not know where the $25,000 came from?

Buyer: I don't. Serious. I don't recall.

In fact, six years after the Frontier Foundation started, it's collected more than $800,000. Yet it hasn't spent a penny on scholarships.

It can be difficult to know where Buyer's re-election campaign ends and his Frontier Foundation begins. His campaign and Foundation shared office space. Until August, his campaign manager also ran his Foundation - inviting select donors to golf outings with Buyer at posh resorts.
