State Controller Tony DiNapoli that he will begin to publicly push for laws that would par busted politicians busted on felony charges from getting their pensions.



While this is a good idea, with the lawyers that these politicians have (paid for with campaign funds), we rarely ever see anything less than pled out cases.



For two years we have been promoting the idea that elected officials should have to sign political pre-nups before taking office.



This would be a legally binding document



Itís very simple. They sign this pre-nup which states that if they are forced from their positions due to illegal or improper behavior they will give up any claim to any pensions or benefits that they may be entitled to. And they agree to pay back any monies that may have been illegally gained without dispute.

Now any honest politician should have no problem signing this agreement.

It would be interesting to see if any actually would.
