Senate corruption: Pay?

Published: Saturday, Mar. 29, 2014 - 12:03 pm

Re "Senate drops 3 in legal trouble" (Page A1, March 29): I was always under the assumption that if someone is suspended from their job, their pay stops. In almost all work places in the regular worker world, once you are accussed of a wrongdoing, you are either suspended or discharged. You usually have an appeal, but certainly you are not allowed to continue to receive full pay and benefits. Our legislators seem to be in work place heaven, where even if you are convicted or indicted, they are presumed innocent as long as they continue through the appeal process appeal. They do not receive their per diem but of course not they are not working. I am wondering if anyone else sees anything wrong with this picture.
