Which lawmakers will refuse their pay during the shutdown?

Updated and corrected: 10:54 a.m. Monday Feb. 18, 2014:

A little more than a week after we started asking, nearly 250 lawmakers have said they will not accept their pay for the length of the federal government shutdown.

By law members of Congress and the president will continue being paid during the impasse because they are paid with mandatory funds, not discretionary spending dependent on annual appropriations.
