2010 Annual Report to Congress on White House Staff

The Obama administration has released its annual list of White House salaries, which shows a pay freeze is still in effect. White House counsel Robert Bauer tops the list of legal staff at $172,200, the same salary his predecessor was earning at this time last year. Salaries on the annual list -- the only official public accounting of White House staffing -- contrast sharply with individuals' salaries in the private sector. Bauer made $958,788 in 2009 as head of the political law practice at Perkins Coie.
