To summarize: No money for White House tours because of the sequester, but more than enough for another vacation.
President Obama and his family are likely headed to Martha’s Vineyard for a summer sojourn again this year.
A source tells POLITICO that the Secret Service has started booking accomodations on the toney island off the Massachusetts coast.
So far, the White House isn’t saying anything, but the Vineyard is abuzz with the news. The first family is expected toward the end of August, said the source, who spoke on condition of anonymity.
Obama had to skip his traditional Vineyard vacation last year as he campaigned for reelection. But he and his family went there for three summers before that.
