Hold that paycheck, Mississippi’s U.S. Rep Steven Palazzo says

They’ve tweeted about the shutdown and chastised the Democrats for not negotiating over the government shutdown.

They’ve retweeted photos from the World War II monument where some of them helped World War II veterans get through barricades.They’ve touched off lengthy Facebook debates on the shutdown and the Affordable Care Act.But Mississippi’s delegation never did bring up their own salaries, which they can continue to receive even as their staffs are on furlough or working without pay.

And it took all day to get an answer to the questions:

n Are you donating your salary to charity?

n Would you support a bill eliminating your salary for the duration of the shutdown?
