Gardner has declined to reject his salary during the shutdown
On the 19th morning of President Trump’s federal government shutdown, Senator Cory Gardner (R-CO) wasn’t negotiating reopening the government. Nor was he responding to Coloradans going without pay while Trump prolongs his pointless shutdown.
Instead, he was at a fundraiser hosted by lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck’s PAC.
Watch Gardner fail to answer for his out-of-touch fundraiser:
Gardner is also continuing to collect
his six-figure salary while thousands of furloughed Coloradans go without pay. During the 2013 shutdown, Gardner pledged to donate
his Congressional salary, but never offered proof that the funds had been donated.
