Multi-millionaire Pittenger says he'll donate government paycheck
It must be nice to be so rich:
“Any pension received from the state is given to charity,” Pittenger said in an email. “As you know I have stated that I will not take a federal pension and will donate my Congressional salary.” In a disclosure statement filed with Congress, he lists assets of between $25 million and $50 million in the Robert Pittenger Co., and a 2011 salary from the real estate investment company of between $1 million and $5 million.
And before you say it, I know there isn't a snowball's chance in hell of a Dem taking this seat. But I'd rather have a retired Sheriff in there than a land baron:
This just speaks volumes about the hypocritical attitude of Mr. Pittenger criticizing me and every other employee who’s received a pension,” Pendergraph said. “I’d love to contribute mine to charity, but I have to buy groceries and pay my house payment with mine.”
