Washington, D.C. – When it comes to throwing West Virginians under the bus, liberal Evan Jenkins is on a roll. Last week, Jenkins voted for a $1.3 trillion omnibus spending bill that empowered gun grabbers, was soft on illegal immigration, funded Planned Parenthood, and wasted billions in pork barrel spending (RC #127, 03/22/18).
Now, it turns out the same omnibus increased salaries and benefits for Washington politicians! (Free Beacon, 03/22/18) Both the House and Senate increased their own budgets, while the Senate also increased its expense account. Senate staffers and committee staffers will also walk away with increased salaries.
Does Evan Jenkins have no shame?
“Evan Jenkins put his swamp friends in Washington D.C. ahead of hardworking West Virginians,” Republican U.S. Senate candidate Patrick Morrisey said. “Congressman Jenkins voted for the $1.3 trillion omnibus that not only funds Planned Parenthood and sanctuary cities, it also raises salaries for Washington politicians! It’s clear that liberal Evan Jenkins will always put himself and his political career ahead of West Virginia’s conservative values.”
