Crime does not pay for convicted Ill. governor

Disgraced former Ill. Governor George H. Ryan got some more bad news this afternoon. A judge in Chicago ruled that the Kankakee Republican is not entitled to one penny of his pension--which until his conviction last year was $197,000 a year.

Ryan's attorneys, among his team is another former Illinois governor James R. Thomspon, were attempting to get part of Ryan's pension, about $65,000 a year worth which goes back to his time as a county official and state representative, into the hands of Ryan and his wife.

That's not going to happen--pending appeals of course.

It's believed that Ryan has no other income--and his only major asset is his Kankakee home.

Crime has not paid for George H. Ryan.
