Assemblyman cashes in on disability pension

Mark Lagerkvist launches New Jersey Watchdog with an investigation of a state assemblyman who collected $570,000 in disability payments after retiring as a police officer with a bad back at age 31.  Assemblyman David Rible, now 42, competes in five-mile runs, dances as a celebrity and hauls trash to the curb.  In addition to his $49,000 salary as a legislator, Rible continues to receive a state disability pension that pays $54,502 a year – without a second look from authorities.  If he lives until 80, he will pocket another $2 million from the state.
