OOPS: Phony Wage Gap Statistics From White House Spur A Backlash. “I’m betting the White House staffer who thought up the equal pay initiative is getting some fairly icy looks and snippy calls from Democrats. This has to be the worst idea since a staffer sent Air Force One’s backup plane to fly low over Manhattan. But at least the jet didn’t cause grief to fellow Democrats around the country. Day 2 of the president’s equal pay calamity continued today.”

Plus:

Mark Udall pays women 85 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

Mary Landrieu pays women 88 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

Mark Begich pays women 82 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

Mark Warner pays women 75 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

Gary Peters pays women 67 cents for every dollar that a man makes.

That means on average, these five Democrats on the ballot in battleground states pay women in their office 79 cents for every dollar made by a male employee.

Heh. And the White House isn’t much better.
