Officeholder Discloses Grocery Salary

A Maryland officeholder disclosed that he received a salary from a grocery chain on his ethics disclosure reports, according to this Post story.

Currie’s failure to disclose the information is at the center of a year-old FBI investigation.

Currie, chairman of the Senate Budget and Taxation Committee, was paid more than $207,000 over five years by the grocery chain, according to a court document unsealed in July. The document shows that Currie was first paid by the company in February 2003 and received $30,000 from it that year. His compensation rose to more than $54,000 annually by 2007.
