Sue Kelly's all-expense paid travels

It's obviously good to be an elected member of Congress, at least judging from the travel perks enjoyed by Sue Kelly. In 2005, Kelly was the beneficiary of no less than five all-expense paid trips which were paid for by various special interest groups.

Kelly's special interest adventures included:

It's clear that the only reason these special interest groups are paying for these trips is to gain influence and it seems that the price of admission in order to gain access to Sue Kelly is providing her with an all expense paid travel itinerary. When you take the huge campaign contributions from big business and now the all expense paid travel provided by these special interest groups and combine that with her voting record, it's easy to see that Sue Kelly represents the pro-big business conservative Republican interests and not her constituents in New York's 19th Congressional District.

Hmmm...isn't that trip to Qatar the same one Kelly's posse tried to spin in this NY Post story that supposedly showed how independent she supposedly is? So it was fine to take the Qatar Chamber of Commerce's $9000 in 2005, as noted here, but not fine in 2006?
