Rep. Cawthorn’s top staffer will make $127K with no working experience

The leading staffer for Rep. Madison Cawthorn of North Carolina would make the equal of a $127,111 once-a-year salary despite owning no background in government and minor other get the job done encounter except for running Texas fireworks stands, according to not long ago introduced congressional spending experiences and a Republican Capitol Hill supply. 

The quarterly disbursements statement exhibits the initially-expression Western North Carolina Republican Cawthorn’s Chief of Staff William “Blake” Harp created $31,777.77 in the initially quarter of the calendar year, the equal of $127,111 every year.

That is not unusual for a person jogging the workplace of a member of Congress. But Harp, who seemingly understood Cawthorn considering the fact that at the very least 2016 when Cawthorn was 20 years previous and Harp was of a comparable age, has no track record in govt, unlike other chiefs of team, a Republican legislative staff members member said.
