Kerry Asked to Return Senate Pay: The National Taxpayers Union wants Senator Kerry to return the pay he received while campaigning for the Presidency. Kerry is not the only one at fault. According to the NTU, Kerry is at the top of a list of 25 senator and congressmen who either ran for higher office or were in a fight to retain their seat.
P.S. I thought I'd add another comment before someone else mentioned it. I don't think that President Bush should return any of his paycheck while campaigning. He was the incumbent. He was doing his job while campaigning. He is President 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Even when he takes a vacation, he is still President. He doesn't get time off. That being said, as long as he can do the job while campaigning, it's not a problem. If he can't, he won't be re-elected anyway. 51 percent of the voting American public believed he was doing his job and so re-elected him to another four years.
