Senator Chuck Schumer Admits to Spending More Than $8K on Cheesecake

Finally! A semi-relatable story about a politician.

Well, maybe if you're a Golden Girl....but still, we like the idea.

The New York Post released a report showing that Senator Chuck Schumer has spent over $8,600 on cheesecake from a famed Brooklyn restaurant in the past decade.

The money, which a spokesperson says did not come from taxpayers, was paid to Junior's Cheesecake between 2009 and 2016 by the Friends of Schumer PAC.

Schumer says the food and restaurant have been apart of his life since he was a kid.

"I give them as gifts. I use them for bets, you know when someone wants to bet something, you know for a Brooklyn thing versus a Wisconsin thing."
