I’m up late reading the news, and there are three things I wanted to pass along, in hopes that they might keep you awake as well.
1) Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, while proposing deep pay cuts for employees of local government, “is using state funds to pay more than $81,500 a year to the 26-year-old son of a major campaign donor with no college degree and two drunken-driving convictions.” To make matters worse, this young man, in his new position, “oversees state environmental and regulatory issues.”
3) In 2009, Sarah Palin’s daughter Bristol was hired at a salary of $262,500 a year to work for a nonprofit dedicated to the prevention of teen pregnancies. And,if you can believe it, that’s not even the most disgusting part. The nonprofit, during that same year, disbursed only $35,000 to the organizations it was created to fund.
So, did you learn anything new today that you’d like to share?
