USA Today’s truly amazing report on thousands of state legislators who have, with bald faced gall, voted themselves lavish lifetime pensions for a part time gig they did for but part of their working lives.

Some astonishing and sickening stories are included. I bet a lot of these pols have been fervently hoping people would stay focused on outrageous public worker pensions and not notice the legislator’s sweet deals.
