Soucek Took the Money

During the recent three-day special session of the NC General Assembly, during which precisely nothing was done, the members were paid $104 per day, plus travel expenses, for doing precisely nothing. When criticism of this waste of time and state money grew in the public press, some 121 lawmakers in both chambers said they wouldn't accept their per diem allowance, saving the taxpayers about $12,000-a-day.

Dan Soucek took the money, along with 19 other senators. Fellow Republican and NC House member Jonathan Jordan, turned back the money.

WRAL in Raleigh posted the details yesterday afternoon.

So much for being a fiscal conservative and defender of the 2nd amendment...RINO!
