The advantage of being a California state senator is not limited to getting so many political contributions from both unions and business establishments, but also cushy paychecks from the state, including tax-free per diem of $145 per day over the Memorial Day weekend by moving meeting schedules around. The state legislators add $64K on their day-off to the California deficit.

Clever? You bet!
