John Cornyn, the minority whip and #2 ranking
Republican in the Senate, collected $65,383 in
public retirement benefits in 2012 in addition
to his $174,000 salary as a U.S. Senator. Those
public retirement benefits are for Big Bad John's
four years of service on a county court and six
years of service on the Texas Supreme Court.
How's that for triple-dipping? Not bad for a
taxes-hating teabagger, is it?
