The spoiled rotten kids of DC’s elite.

The article documents in great detail how elected officials use their power to get great jobs for their kids. Not surprisingly, since this article is written by a modern journalist who favors this corrupt elitism, it starts out by describing the corruption involved with this favoritism, then shifts into finding excuses for it.

    And this is surprising to whom? Long have relatives of politicians landed high-paying, no-show jobs. For example, jobs for hospital administrators related to state senators can pay almost a third of a million dollars a year! To start! Now thats an entry level position that pays a living wage instead of minimum wage.
