Conlin amounted at least 2/5ths socialism (fruit-trees for free society etc), so i'd make that (1/9) - ((2/5)/9) so, letsee, [abacus clack]... 6.6% more socialism (which, of course, presumes that Ms Sawant is 100.0% socialism incarnate)

When does Sawant start donating her salary "above the average worker's pay"? Is that paycheck by paycheck or will she start donating all of her pay in May - Dec?

“At a time of budget cuts, the Seattle City Council pays themselves nearly $120,000 a year, more than any other council in the U.S. except LA! If elected, I will only take the average worker’s wage and donate the rest to building social movements.” – Kshama Sawant.

wow so many folks starting to harp on sawant when they probably haven't even received their first paychecks...unless they get paid daily or something, i would assume that they receive their pay like most other city employees, twice-monthly...
