Sen. Rand Paul raised questions about the same Hurricane Sandy ad campaign now being investigated by the federal government, calling the advertisements a "black eye" at a November committee hearing looking into the government's response to the storm.

Rep. Frank Pallone, a Democrat from New Jersey, said Monday the Department of Housing and Urban Development inspector general planned to audit the campaign to take a closer look at the how the $25 million spent promoting the Jersey Shore in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy was used.
