Two lawmakers skipped a recent high-level briefing on National Security Agency (NSA) snooping so they could go to the Paris Air Show. [WATCH VIDEO]
Six lawmakers actually attended the show last weekend but one of them, Sen. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), was able to attend the briefing, according to his office, and catch an evening flight to France, demonstrating it was possible to attend a briefing on a major political issue and still join the plush codel.

Sens. Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.) and Richard Shelby (R-Ala.) missed the 2:30 p.m. session to catch an afternoon flight from Dulles International Airport.
