Congress loots public largesse to give themselves $93,000:

Isn’t this a direct violation of (if somehow not the letter) of the 27th Amendment?

No law, varying the compensation for the services of the Senators and Representatives, shall take effect, until an election of Representatives shall have intervened.

Never mind the despicableness of this move. Is this even Constitutional?

EDIT: I can’t find anything verifying this on any other news outlets or any kind of resolution passed to this effect. So far it’s just this one Fox News clip. This seems a little fishy.
