Growing evidence of U.S. taxpayer money spent on the controversial proposed Kenyan constitution vote, set for August 4th, drew sharp criticism from four Members of the House of Representatives this afternoon.

Reps. Trent Franks of Arizona, Jeff Fortenberry of Nebraska, Joseph Pitts of Pennsylvania, and Chris Smith of New Jersey criticized the Obama Administration’s spending to influence the vote on the referendum through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

USAID has reported spending at least $23 million to promote the proposed constitution.
