California legislators suing for more pay

Hmmm. This should be popular with taxpayers. California's beyond bankrupt, and yet the very people running it into the ground are suing for more money:

State legislators are making yet another attempt to get back salary and benefits that were cut by an independent commission last year.

Assemblyman Gil Cedillo (D-Los Angeles) has filed a claim against the state on behalf of all state legislators alleging that the 18% cut in pay and benefits was illegal. The claim, filed with the California Victim Compensation and Government Claims Board, could result in taxpayers reimbursing elected officials for millions of dollars in lost pay and benefits.
