Weiner Pension Worth $1.3M – After 12 Yrs

From an unfazed Roll Call:

Weiner’s Pension, Benefits Could Top $1 Million

By John Stanton   
June 16, 2011

While Rep. Anthony Weiner may no longer have the benefit of Congress’ generous health care plan once he resigns, he will still be able to collect his pension and other benefits that could total more than $1 million during his lifetime.

According to an analysis of his available benefits by the National Taxpayers Union, the New York Democrat’s pension and a savings plan lawmakers have access to similar to a 401(k) could be worth $1.12 million to $1.28 million.

At 46, Weiner will not be eligible for his pension for another decade, at which point he could begin drawing a reduced rate of $32,357 a year, according to NTU. If he waits until age 62 to begin drawing his pension, he will receive his full benefits, or $46,224, according to NTU’s calculations.

Additionally, if Weiner aggressively invested in the Thrift Savings Plan, his balance would be roughly $216,000, the organization said…

And when you add in Huma Abedin Weiner’s salary and benefits and pension, Mr. Weiner turns out to be quite the lucky stiff.

But just think about it. Mr. Weiner racked up a retirement account worth nearly $1.3 million dollars, which will net him nearly $50,000 a year upon retirement for the rest of his life — after a mere 12 years of ‘public service.’

In a saner world this would be the real scandal here.

    If I had no morals and could steal candy from a babies mouth while shaking the mothers’ hand
    I could do his job. But I just can’t sink to the level of these professional liars.
    Not even for that amount of money. I have to be able to live with myself.
    (Damn scruples)

    Wow, I just realized that Huma is the assistant Hillary was reputedly keeping on staff as her lesbian lover, back in November 2007.

    Now the Jewish husband of this practicing lesbian Muslim is caught with his pants down in a different kind of sexual scandal>

    Geez.
