Channel 4 has a fascinating piece on state employees getting raises while others faced unpaid days off. Some of the employees didn't even ask for the raises while one employee got a raise for helping Department of Public Safety Secretary John Denko renew newspaper subscriptions and update his Blackberry, according to the report. See it below.
I will update later with reaction from Gov.-elect Susana Martinez. It will be interesting to see if there's anything she can do to undo the raises. She said yesterday she'd fire any exempt employees who have accepted classified positions since the election without prior discussion with her.
