According to The Advocate, four Republican Louisiana congressman willingly delayed their paychecks to stand with the federal workers going without pay during the partial shutdown of the federal government.

The four representatives are Garret Graves of Baton Rouge, Clay Higgins of Port Barre, Mike Johnson of Bossier Parish and Ralph Abraham of Richland Parish.

Normally, the congressmen's paychecks would not be affected, however, they each sent letters requesting that their pay be withheld until the shutdown is over.
