For a distraction…
At least four staffers with significant political portfolios have left Congressman Joe Sestak’s (D-7) Senate campaign in recent weeks, potentially leaving the Democratic challenger at an organizational deficit just three months before the primary, pa2010.com has learned.
J.J. Abbott, a communications staffer, has departed to take a job with Auditor General Jack Wagner’s gubernatorial campaign. That makes at least five staffers who have left the campaign in the last several weeks. Including Abbott, two of them have landed with Wagner.
And then, POW!
Specter to Sestak: You don’t pay your staffers jack
Senator Arlen Specter’s campaign on Thursday sharply criticized primary opponent Congressman Joe Sestak (D-7) for paying his campaign staff salaries that often amount to less than the minimum wage, and for wide pay disparities between the three siblings that work his campaign and other employees.
Followed by a tweet (which is how I saw it):
Cong. Sestak, either pay your employees minimum wage & comply with wage laws, or report yourself to the authorities.
