WASHINGTON, D.C.–During the partial government shutdown, Congressman Pete Stauber (MN-08) has decided to donate his Congressional salary to a domestic violence organization in Duluth.

Stauber, who was sworn-in to the U.S. House of Representatives for his first term last week, will give his salary to Domestic Abuse Intervention Program in Duluth.

In a news release, Stauber said it will be difficult for his family to go without a paycheck, but added that he believes it isn’t right for members of Congress to be paid while thousands of federal workers are furloughed.

“In my 22 years serving as a Duluth police officer, I saw firsthand the incredible work that the Domestic Abuse Intervention Program does to keep battered women safe and ensure that their abusers are held accountable, and I am pleased to contribute to their cause,” Stauber said.

The Domestic Abuse Intervention Program helps local law enforcement, courts and women’s shelters work together to end domestic violence against women.
