    From http://www.legistorm.com/... you can view the salaries of those who work for members of Congress. To me, it seems that most Senators pay staffers how you'd expect (more $ for longer time served and higher position). Some MD Republicans though continue to claim Sen. Cardin discriminates based on gender.

    A local Maryland conservative continually claims that Sen. Cardin (D-MD) pays his female staffers less.

    From the latest round of reporting, the only reason it would seem female staffers are paid less is that they lower positions than males, as is the case for the Senator's female Administrative Director and male Chief of Staff.

    Does anyone else hear claims about Democrats not practicing what they preach in regards to paycheck fairness, or is he just making crap up and can't understand that different positions mean different pay scales?
