“-so what. Its the right think to decline tax payer money ESPEICALLY if she’s getting a big book deal.”

Wrong you are, grasshopper. If you are doing your job and there is a chance for a pay raise for you because of the job you are doing, then your personal financial situation is not considered. I’ve gotten many raises in my lifetime and I never had to discuss what other ventures I may have had on the sad. My merit raises were based on my performance. If I wrote a book or a song, or invented something and made a fortune, why should my employer get out of offering me a raise if it is warranted?

She deserves both the pay raise and the book deal. They are separate financial transactions IMHO.
