Congressional Pensions

Yes, crime does pay no matter what you may have heard. Just ask Congressman Jefferson or Congressman Rostenkowski.

Congressman Jefferson will get a $47,000-a-year pension while in prison, despite his criminal activity.

One congressman called the pensions a "jailhouse ATM."

According to the National Taxpayers Union, at least 20 congressional crooks receive pensions, both in and out of prison.

Democrat Dan Rostenkowski now receives nearly $125,000 a year despite being one of the biggest crooks in congressional history.
