A Star-Ledger investigation of New Jersey's public employee retirement system reveals that the state "pays nearly $1.8 million a year to 77 former government workers convicted of job-related crimes." In a related story, the publication discovered that "top-ranking local government officials in New Jersey profit from carefully crafted deals that provide them with inflated retirement checks."
