Senate Republicans Ignore Fiscal Crisis and Boost Staffing
NYS Senate Republicans are not letting a little financial crisis get in the way of good patronage appointments. Glenn Blain at the Daily News is reporting that they have added $1.3 million in payroll since they took over in January of this year. This includes the hiring of 27 new staffers and raises for others. Of course, they are just trying to keep up with the Democrats, who when they held power gorged themselves on staffing as well. Good to see that both parties have provided strong leadership during this finanical crisis.
