This is one of those stories that is going to make you angry to hear. New York politicians accused of robbing taxpayers are continuing to pocket money. Even from behind bars. Under the law, public officials found guilty of a crime still can collect taxpayer-funded pensions. But one Manhattan attorney wants to put an end to this. At an anti-corruption hearing today, Governor Cuomo was urged to step in and stop the practice. If that doesn't make you angry enough, get this. Some politicians who are behind bars collect over 50 thousand dollars in taxpayer money.
