Letter: Why are corrupt officials still receiving a pension?

Why are corrupt officials still receiving a pension?

Why are former elected officials drawing pensions after they are convicted of a major crime? Former State Sen. Dean Skelos, for one, is collecting a nest egg of over $95,000.

I think the taxpayers should be alarmed because that is coming out of their pockets and they are paying for this high-priced criminal.

I guess you could say that the old saying, “crime doesn’t pay,” does not apply here.
