Rep. Sean Duffy Complains About His $174,000 Salary

Poor guy.

ThinkProgress » Rep. Sean Duffy Complains About His $174,000 Salary: ‘I Drive A Used Minivan’

Duffy is certainly no Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA), a multimillionaire car alarm mogul. Like many Wisconsinites, he has several kids and, according to his financial disclosure statement, student loans and a mortgage to pay off. But Duffy’s salary is indeed aboutthree times Wisconsin’s (and the national) median income. What’s more, Wisconsin’sunemployment rate is 7.4 percent statewide, and 8.2 percent in Wausau, a city Duffy represents.

But if Duffy wants to “start getting real” and relieve some of that financial burden, he could sell that second home in Iron River, WI he owns.

All right, he's a member of a natural food cooperative. How lefty is that?

I take back all of the nasty things I ever said about him.

Iron River is about a half-hour drive from Ashland. Isn't Ashland remote enough? Doesn't he have his main house is Ashland still?
