How Poor Are Our Legislators: Greg Burdine

Greg Burdine is the Democratic Representative for District I, Lauderdale County. Could Rep. Burdine afford to give up 15% of his salary?

* Burdine has been a practicing attorney since 1989 and is a partner in a well-known Florence firm.

* Burdine is married and has children living at home.

Of the politicians we have profiled so far, Rep. Burdine may be the least financially able to return 15% of his state salary; however, it's hardly a given that he would suffer if he chose to do so.

Probably very little--a fact that may open the door for a new candidate in 2012. Does the name Roger Bedford ring a bell?
