During shutdown, congressional pay strikes a nerve

WASHINGTON (AP) -- Take the money or not?
That's the question many members of Congress are struggling with during the government shutdown.
For many lawmakers who support their families on their government salary, withholding pay or donating it to charity can be difficult.
But any lawmaker faces charges of being out of touch if he or she takes a paycheck while workers are furloughed and government services are curtailed.
