    Illinois pension system: 2 teachers union lobbyists used loophole for fat pensions - Chicago Tribune

    SPRINGFIELD — — Two lobbyists with no prior teaching experience were allowed to count their years as union employees toward a state teacher pension once they served a single day of subbing in 2007, a Tribune/WGN-TV investigation has found.

    Steven Preckwinkle, the political director for the Illinois Federation of Teachers, and fellow union lobbyist David Piccioli were the only people who took advantage of a small window opened by lawmakers a few months earlier.

    Democrat lawmakers passing laws to benefit union lobbyists and wasting taxpayer funds. Who would have thought???

    You won't see this being the subject of a protest.

    There's been several stories past couple of weeks of Chicago union and/or political stooges getting fat pensions as a result of questionable practices/policies. Nothing new to the Toddling Town.
