HOH Word of the Week: Junketeer

“Junketeer . Member of Congress given to travel outside of his or her district. All too often, the junketeer is more than willing to give up precious winter days in Washington, D.C., to discuss Atlantic-Pacific relations under the hot Hawaiian sun or to address the issue of Caribbean cooperation at poolside in Montego Bay.”
