War on Women: Democrats Pay Female Staffers Less Than Male Counterparts

Yep, you read that right.  The same Democrats that cheered the Lilly Ledbetter Act, which removed the statue of limitations on suing for pay discrimination, has been caught doing a little discriminating of there own:
Barbara Mikulski (D., Md.), Patty Murray (D., Wash.), Debbie Stabenow (D., Mich.), Dianne Feinstein (D., Calif.) and Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.)—three pay their female staff members significantly less than male staffers. 
Murray, who has repeatedly accused Republicans of waging a “war a women,” is one of the worst offenders. Female members of Murray’s staff made about $21,000 less per year than male staffers in 2011, a difference of 35.2 percent.
