Slave To The Wage?
Michael "Ponzi" Fitzgerald.
The "Ponz", pictured, said he was disappointed a proposal by Governor Branstad to give statewide elected officials a pay raise apparently has been torpedoed by the chairman of his political party.
The proposal would have raised the pay of Iowa's next Treasurer from $103,212 to $112,510.
It's a shame that one hundred grand doesn't buy what it once did and the scientific community is united in that fact.
Fitzgerald thanked the governor for seeking a pay raise on their behalf that he and Iowa Attorney General Tom Miller, also a Democrat, supported.
The next Attorney General's salary would rise from $123,669 to $134,800.
The last time these two's salaries came up was in 2010, when the Big Lug Nut took a 10 percent pay cut and Fitzgerald (Ten Percent?) and Miller (Miller Lite) refused to do the same.
