I'm glad you posted this. Does this clause mean that NO member of US Senate or House can become a cabinet member? I thought this happened with some frequency, Bill Richardson himself, eg. I can't imagine that salaries for such positions would be frozen for long periods of time.

I get the feeling that the Congress could just lower the Secretary of State's pay to pre-raise level and she would be ok.

I don't know if the pay for other cabinet positions was increased.

Tim,

I have read that a similar "fix" was made for a Nixon appointee, last name Saxbe.
