State pension systems reap
"The recent headlines reveal that U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald can help save us from this mess. Recall that the state pension board unanimously canceled former Gov. George Ryan’s $197,000-a-year pension, because of his recent conviction.
Even though the state constitution does not allow pension benefits to be reduced, state law does allow pensions to be taken away from someone who has been convicted of a crime. So now it is up to Fitzgerald to solve the $45.8 billion unfunded pension liabilities problem.
He just needs to uncover other massive state corruption schemes and convict the majority of current and former state employees and teachers. With the conviction of Ryan and some of his state employees, and the investigation of the current administration, Fitzgerald seems to be well on the way." <more>
