Taxpayer-Paid Babysitters

According to a lively blogger, (Mad, Bad, and Dangerous to Know) some of our Legislator-ettes who are Mommies are bringing their little darlings to work these days.

Cute. Makes nice pictures.

However, State employees (legislative staff) become baby-sitters as a result. Rather than actually doing their jobs, they wind up chasing Muffy around the offices, keeping her from jacking around with the computer systems, providing paper/crayons, and maybe even serving as Solid-Waste disposal assistants.

The Leggies seem to think that the staff are, in effect, personal servants--except, of course, that the Leggies don't have to pay for the servants. The State taxpayers do.
