Re "Indicted senators insult voters by collecting salary" (Editorial, July 28): I totally agree with your editorial and I have a suggestion: I would like to see one of our "still unsullied" senastors carry new legislation to the floor requiring that the salaries of Leland Yee, Rob Calderon, Rod Wright and any others who just haven't been caught yet be placed in an interest-bearing account. If they are found innocent, the money would be given to them. If guilt is confirmed, the money could be returned to the taxpayers.

This would require Darrell Steinberg and his cronies to deliver a slap on the wrist to their fellow public self-servants, and I don't see that happening. After all, the same new law could come back to bite them sometime in the future.

This whole thing stinks, and the taxpayers are sick of their elitist, us against them attitude.
