As Fox Nation and the Washington Free Beacon report, several female Senate Democrats want you to do as they say, but not as they do. They are currently spouting “war on women” lines and pushing for passage of the Paycheck Fairness Act, but they are big, old, wage gap-y hypocrites. They actually pay their female staffers less than their male counterparts. From the Fox Nation article:
Of the five senators who participated in Wednesday’s press conference—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.
That is well above the 23 percent gap that Democrats claim exists between male and female workers nationwide.
Whoops! Discriminators, heal thyselves.
Senate Democrats intend to set up a procedural vote after next week's recess on Paycheck Fairness Act Roll Call News http://t.co/F8bGy7yB

The hypocrisy, it burns.
As Twitchy reported earlier when Senator Reid took to Twitter to spread more lies, the wage gap myth has been dispelled elsewhere. Yet, it still exists is in the offices of Senate Democrats.
Twitter users agree.
A substantial gender pay gap exists within female Senate Democrats' own offices. http://t.co/zsBwP46w How rich is that?

Why do President Obama and Democrats hate women?
