Wee bit of an update on Reynold's role

I've posted a small update on the Tom Reynolds' campaign smearing of Democratic challenger Jim Sullivan. You can find it here.

Reynolds, by the way, said JJ Blonien is not his campaign manager, but is just campaign consultant.

"The campaign doesn't pay him," Reynolds said.

Well, that's interesting. Blonien is still formally on Reynolds' taxpayer-funded office staff. He's listed a a full-time, benefitted employee. He's reportedly "working from home" on a full-time basis, a cushy perk that virtually no other legislative staffperson in state service enjoys.

Legislative staff are required to provide written pre-notification of their intent to take vacation to work on campaign efforts, if those efforts fall during the regularly-scheduled workday. I wonder if Blonien is doing that?

Is it that Blonien is not getting paid by the Reynolds campaign because he is getting paid instead by the taxpayers, by way of the Reynolds legislative office? Just asking.
