Daleys Flew Only Once On Luxury Jet Of Non-Profit Under Investigation: Spokesman

A non-profit company under investigation by the IRS and Congress flew Chicago Mayor Richard Daley and his wife, Maggie, to Singapore on its corporate jet.

While spokesman Jacquelyn Heard acknowledges Daley and his wife made the trip in September 2006, she denies a CBS News report the Daleys took 58 flights over a five-year period courtesy of Educap.

Educap is being investigated for allegedly abusing its tax-exempt status by charging high interest on charitable student loans and the lavish perks it provides its CEO.

Heard said Wednesday a check of travel records found that Daley had flown commercial on numerous dates when CBS had him flying on the Educap jet. She said the Singapore trip is only one the Daleys flew on the non-profit's dime.
