Last night the investigative news organization ProPublica found out from a Freedom of Information Request that Senator Ericksen is making roughly $2000 per week or an annual salary of over $125,000 in DC. That is on top of the $46,000 +$120 per diem he is drawing from Washington State. We have requested this salary information for months and Ericksen has always claimed he did not know it. The truth is that he was hiding his salary. He did not want to voters to know the extent of his double dipping income, while doing far less than what is expected.
