That’s a Lot of Wasted Money

Snowflakes in Hell points out that everybody’s favorite punching bag, the Violence Policy Center, is a pretty sweet gig to be in charge of. For doing no real work you can nab a six-digit salary:

On their 2008 tax return, of the approximately 890,000 dollars VPC took in, they spent 513,738 on salaries and benefits for employees, including a compensation package of 145,120 each for Sugarmann and Rand.

And they’ve done nothing besides some Google searches they claim are research. Damn that’s a fine little scam they have going there.
