Reason #13 For Loving Politicians

Politician in Newfoundland getting +$100k/year while on “administrative leave”:

A former Newfoundland and Labrador cabinet minister has earned more than $300,000 in salary for his job with a federal agency, even though he has not reported to work for well over two years.

This is the kind of thing that makes greedy youngsters want to get into politics. How inspiring!

Tommyboy: you been arrested yet? Seems like the thing to do.

  1. Better: he hasn’t reported for work because he’s facing fraud charges – for close to $300,000 in taxpayers’ money. That’s a total of $600,000 in shady earnings. Nice to know where my tax dollars are going.

  2. whoo hooo..things to strive for, goals to attain…sorry I just a lowly municipal politition where by the electorate has almost unfettered access to me and lets me know daily that each and every one of them are responsible for my 16,000 a year salary and meeting per diem….It is unlikely that I will be arressted due to my chicken shit nature, …bad taste and insolence are not yet a criminal code violation…yet…

    I was invited to a screening of that doc, but had to pass. Sometimes I just can’t handle that kind of grimness. Apparently a well made doc, though.
