Double-Dipping in New Jersey

A New Jersey Watchdog investigation by Mark Lagerkvist reveals that more than 20 "investigators and supervisors who work for Attorney General Paula T. Dow and her Division of Criminal Justice" are receiving both a salary and a pension. For example, the New Jersey State Police captain retired at age 50. However, he "began work at a state unit that investigates corruption" the next day.  

Lagerkvist reports: "Collectively, the 23 “retirees” receive $3.77 million a year – $1.56 million a year in pension pay plus $2.21 million in state salaries. On average, they each pocket $164,000 a year – $96,000 in salary and nearly $68,000 from pension."
