Lawmaker Paid Staff Bonuses
(Las Vegas, NV) — Former Congresswoman Dina Titus paid out nearly $155,000 in staff bonuses before leaving office. The “Las Vegas Sun” reports Titus used the annual allowance members of Congress get for office costs.
Titus calls the payments “salary increases,” but they were far higher than what fellow Nevada lawmakers paid out to their staffs. Titus lost her seat to Republican Joe Heck last November.
