    Illinois State Government

    Big win today for the teachers union.

    The Illinois Supreme Court today overturned the lower courts and gave an over $35k pension (in addition to another $34k pension for his brief stint as an aide to Mike Madigan) to a teachers union official that worked for one day as a substitute teacher in which he was paid $93.

    No typo, he was paid $7 less than a hundred and locked in a constitutionally protected pension paid by Illinois taxpayers for $35k a year. For life, with survivor rights to his spouse.

    The wife of Chicago's once most powerful Alderman, Ed Burke, and coincidentally a state supreme court justice, read the decision which found that the pension drawn from the Illinois Teacher Retirement System (TRS) pension was protected by the Illinois State Constitution.

    And this is why we can't have nice things.
