I may have given you a wrong number on the PERS lawsuit. I said PERS total assets were $36 billion. I got that figure from the 2010 PERS financial statement.
However, I've been reading that the fund has $20.8 billion as of June 2011. Which means that 16% (not 8%) was swindled from the PERS fund.
MPB says $20 billion: http://mpbonline.org/News/article/pers_head_says_system_sustainable
After reading further, I am OUTRAGED that Barbour's commission is being funded by federal stimulus money. Money that was SUPPOSED to be used on repairing infrastructure and creating jobs.
