The Washington Free Beacon reported that U.S. Senator Elizabeth Warren, a darling of the Left, paid her female staffers less than her male staffers: The median annual earnings for women staffers, $52,750, was more than $20,000 less than the median annual earnings for men, $73,750, according to the analysis of publicly available Senate data. This […]
The Huffington Post, a liberal media outlet, took issue with the Washington Free Beacon’s report that liberal U.S. Senator Elizabeth “Liz” Warren paid her female staffers less than male staffers. Why? The Free Beacon is accused of allegedly using incomplete data. The thing is, the Free Beacon was transparent on which data they were using […]

Democratic Party presidential candidate Hillary Clinton used the famously debunked “gender pay gap,” or the “77-cent […]
