Legislators give back

Del. Rick Impallaria, a Republican who represents Baltimore and Harford counties, just announced that he'll voluntarily participate in the state worker furloughs. He's also sending out some shots at the Democrats while he's at it:

“I am issuing a further challenge to Governor O’Malley to cut the salaries of his political appointees in state government back to the level of their predecessors. I also challenge all County Executives, the Mayor of Baltimore City, and Patricia Jessamy, who has recently gotten a raise, to do the same. It’s time.”

(Of course, some of O'Malley's appointees would be thrilled to be making what their counterparts did in the Ehrlich administration; others, not so much.)
