Uh, Can We Get A Law Here?

Geez. This sucks.

Former Georgia schools Superintendent Linda Schrenko could get enough from her state pension to repay her debt to society by the time she leaves prison, where she will join the ranks of former public servants who collected retirement money from the taxpayers they ripped off.
Schrenko, who told a television news station in Augusta last week that she would use her pension to pay her portion of the restitution, was sentenced to eight years in federal prison for her part in a $614,000 embezzlement scheme.

    Yeah, this needs to be changed. If you are fired from your state job for misdemeanor or felony acts, your access to the state retirement plan should be nullified to the fullest extent that the state can.

  2. Demonbeck says:

    Well, I am thinking that there are probably federal laws protecting money that you have put into a deferred compensation plan or a 401K. Seeing as how that is your money.

    However, money put into a retirement account by the state should be fair game.

    This is the next thing on the agenda for Senator Rogers I believe. He has brought it up a couple of times at events. I don’t recall anything about Charles Walker’s pension or if he will be receiving it being published in the AJC.
