Rosenberger has taken several trips across the country and overseas, with the costs often picked up by campaign funds or outside groups such as GOPAC or the National Conference of State Legislatures. They have included trips to England, France, Italy and Israel.
He also rents a luxury Downtown condo from Ginni Ragan, an advocate for the elderly and top House GOP contributor.

The Wisconsin Assembly's top leader was among a national group of lawmakers who took a free trip with lobbyists to London — an August excursion that contributed to the resignation Tuesday of his counterpart in Ohio.
Vos, an admirer of the British leader Winston Churchill, said it was reasonable for him as a state official to travel to England to learn about Churchill and global trade, even if lobbyists were there with him.
Elsewhere, Vos said he'll decide by Friday whether to run for Paul Ryan's seat.
