Sean Duffy is whining about his media coverage vs. AOC's coverage.

Hmm which headlines and article does media give to GOP and which to a Dem?












Jake Sherman Retweeted Sean Duffy

To be fair, Mr. Duffy, you are worth a minimum of $273,000 including your cabin. Your wife made $140,500 not including her Fox News salary.

@Ocasio2018 lists assets of at least $17,000 and a salary of $43,000 last year.

1. Whatever. Imo, not a reasonable piece.

I have no respect for anyone who'd join this Republican congress, strong reason to suspect inadequate character at best. But an estate of $273K, probably mostly tied up in residences, is paltry compared to grossly inflated DC expenses. Congressmen who aren't well to do have a notoriously hard time making do on $174K, sleeping in their own offices instead of renting so they don't end up having to refinance their homes back home to make ends meet.

There's nothing strange or whiny about either of these people commenting that the immediate expenses on being elected are hard to meet or even beyond their current means. It's reality for many. And Ocasio's come in for mean coverage also, even suggestions that not having a ready stash of cash was itself proof she was incompetent and unready.

Gimme a break. Give them a break.

2. But AOC wasn't whining about her salary, Sean.

Somebody correct me if I'm wrong (and I know you will!), but isn't her main problem trying to live in DC for several months before she ever receives her first paycheck?
