(Undated) — Former Prince George’s County Executive and convicted felon Jack Johnson is collecting a pension, due to a loophole in Maryland law. ABC7 reports the former lawmaker will collect nearly 50-thousand-dollars a year for life because he was convicted on corruption charges after he left office. ABC7 confirmed through the Maryland State Retirement and Pension System that Johnson began collecting his pension in January based on his 23-years of public service. Johnson’s wife, Leslie who will also serve time for her role in the scheme will not collect any money because she did not serve on the County Council long enough to earn a pension.
