Chastain Repeats Misleading CNS Attack on Obama Staff Pay
Topic: WorldNetDaily

In a July 3 WorldNetDaily column lashing out at "whiney women" who support Barack Obama, Jane Chastain writes: 

When it comes to his payroll, it's McCain, not Obama, who puts his money where his mouth is. According to an analysis by Cybercast News Service of payroll data from the secretary of the Senate, which covered the six-month period ending Sept. 30, 2007, Barack Obama paid his average woman non-intern staffer about $6,000 less than the average man.

As we noted, the CNS comparison is misleading because it does not make an effort to determine whether pay was equal between the sexes on equivalent jobs, misleadingly computing only average total pay for male staff vs. female staff.
