Give officials 100% pay cut

The California Citizens Compensation Commission just cut our wonderful state officials’ pay by 5 percent.

Gov. Jerry Brown’s salary will drop to “only” $165,288 a year. But don’t cry for Brown, California.

As Laer Pearce details in his new book, “Crazifornia,” Jerry actually is one of the wealthiest Californians. After leaving the governor’s office in 1967, Pat Brown, Jerry’s father, worked out oil deals with the blood-drenched dictatorship of Indonesia. Jerry inherited much of that blood money.

Given how Brown and the other “officials” have run the state into the ground, they shouldn’t be paid anything. If they were in the private sector, they would be fired and taken to court for misfeasance and malfeasance.
