California: Carson City Clerk facing criminal investigation as well
Carson City Clerk Jim Dear, who is facing a February 23 recall, is now facing a criminal investigation into the belief that he resigned from the mayor/council position to get a better. The council pays $22,735 a year. The clerk's job is $120,000. His pension could rise from a little over $12k to $66K. due to having the job for one year -- though the recall might subvert that by less than a month. No idea why this is considered a possible legal problem though -- the argument seems to be about pension reform changes, but they don't seem applicable here.
