The California State Senate late Friday morning voted to suspend Yee, and fellow Democrat Senators Ron Calderon and Rod Wright, with pay, “until all criminal proceedings currently pending against them have been dismissed,” according to the Sacramento Bee’s Capitol Alert. The vote was 28-1.
Why is it that people in Government get “Suspended with pay” when being investigated for extreme negligence, corruption or something? How about they get suspended without pay, and will receive backpay should they be exonerated? That way at least we aren’t paying criminals while they are going through their trial.
