Sex Offender Hastert’s Three Government Pensions at Risk after Conviction

Chicago Daily Observer 28 April 2016 No Comment

From Reuters

Illinois stripped former U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Dennis Hastert of his teacher’s pension on Wednesday, but his sentencing for a federal financial crime linked to past sex abuse will not cost him a second, more lucrative state pension.

The state Teachers’ Retirement System moved swiftly after Hastert’s sentencing by ending his $16,622-a-year annuity from 16 years of teaching in a far western suburb of Chicago, where the sexual abuse to which he admitted occurred.

But Hastert will not lose his $28,025 annual pension from his six years as a member of the Illinois House of Representatives.
