VIP perks are history for ousted legislators

Morning Call on what the ousted Senate leaders will be losing as a result of their loss at the ballot box last Tuesday.

Don’t worry though, they’ll still be collecting from the taxpayer until death do we part. According to the Morning Call, “in Jubelirer’s case, the senator will be eligible to collect 93 percent of his average salary over the last three years; Brightbill could collect 66 percent of his average salary over the same time period. And what do they earn? This year, Jubelirer earned about $150,000 and Brightbill earned about $140,000.”

Not bad for “public service.”
