Axne requests paycheck withheld during shutdown

Congresswoman Cindy Axne (D-Iowa 3) sent a letter to Philip Kiko on Wednesday requesting the Chief Administrative Officer to withhold her paycheck until the government fully reopens.

“I do not believe that it is appropriate for Members of Congress to receive paychecks while Iowa families suffer and our security is compromised due to government dysfunction,” Axne wrote.
