MadCo Board member blasts ex-treasurer taking pension

Monday, 28 October 2013 01:58 Published in Local News

   EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. (AP) - A Madison County Board members says it's "disgusting" that the county's ex-treasurer still collects a pension after pleading guilty to a crime.

   Fred Bathon pleaded guilty eight months ago to rigging 2005-2008 tax lien auctions so his political donors could profit from inflated penalties paid by property owners.

   The Belleville News-Democrat reported Sunday that the 58 year old has received more than $340,000 in pension benefits since his 2009 retirement. He was treasurer for 11 years.

   Kathy O'Brien is general counsel with the Illinois Municipal Retirement Fund. O'Brien says that according to state law a pension is terminated at sentencing, not conviction.

   Court records show Bathon's sentencing is Dec. 6.

   Republican Madison County Board member Jamie Goggin says continuing to collect a pension is abusing the public.

   Bathon's attorney declined comment.
