D.C. Officials Want More Pay ... For Themselves

Oct 29, 2018

The top three elected officials in Washington, D.C. could get $20,000 raises next year. D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser would get $220,000 a year, while D.C. Council Chairman Phil Mendelson and Attorney General Karl Racine would make $210,000 a year.

These top officials want a pay raise? Most workers would get written up or fired for the lousy jobs these guys are doing. They certainly wouldn’t get a pay raise!
