Watchdog Group Wants To Close Pension Loophole


A watchdog group wants to close a loophole that allows people convicted of public corruption... including former Springfield powerbroker Bill Cellini... to keep collecting a public pension.

 

Cellini receives a small pension of just over $70 a month for working briefly as a schoolteacher early in his career.  But since his corruption conviction was not related to the job, he remains eligible to receive those monthly payments. 

 

The Illinois Campaign for Political Reform wants to change state law so that anyone convicted of public corruption would forfeit all public pensions, even those from jobs unrelated to their crimes.
