Because the crimes of which he has been convicted aren't on the list of crimes that would keep him from drawing his pension?(via Hot Air) Yet the former VP at Penn State could lose his pension if convicted of perjury. I think it's more than a quirk that this type of heimous crime isn't on the list. Why not just make a felony conviction a disqualifier?
I'm guessing the odds of a forfeiture here are long. The taxpayers will have to foot the bill for this monster's pension. Granted, it's his wife who will benefit; Sandusky is in prison for the rest of his life, most likely. To me it makes no difference. This gaping hole in the rules needs to be fixed and that such crimes were never on the list in the first place is telling.
