Makes sense but at 66 where you gonna make that kind of money around here. He lived his life and needed some security. Can't blame him there for wanting to take care of his family. Doesn't make it right but does it make it right for politicians to destroy our area and limit financial opportunities?

the only work he would have had to do was bullshit enough ppl to vote for him, then sit back and fill his pockets for the next few years and collect a big check for doing nothing when he loses the election. I'm considering a 2 year stint just for the fat check and free medical for life for doing nothing at all. I think we all should!

yea when you screw an insurance corporation its a big federal crime but when they screw YOU its a bail out with taxpayer money and big raises for their CEOs. Screw them because they set the laws with their lobbyist in washington where your congressmen and senators are in their pockets.Laws are written for their benefit and the public paid police are there to enforce these laws might as well say they work for the insurance company and are paid with public funds.They investigate insurance accidents.claims of losses and thefts and write tickets to raise rates
