Don’t you LOVE it when Democrats preen on and on about making sure women are paid equally and then you find out they are some of the biggest culprits when it comes to actually paying women less?
For example, Elizabeth Warren, you got some ‘splainin’ to do …

Per the Free Beacon:
… women working for Warren were paid just 71 cents for every dollar paid to men during the 2016 fiscal year, according to a Washington Free Beacon analysis. The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data. When calculated using average salaries rather than median, the pay gap expands to just over $26,051, or about 31 percent.
Consistent with previous Free Beacon analyses of Senate salary data, only full-time staffers who were employed for the entire period in question were included in the calculations.
Uh-oh, Chief Shaky Fist.
