Andy Dillon is still earning his treasurer's salary from the state, despite resigning the position. Our readers are none too happy. (Dale G. Young / Detroit News)
Something stinks in Lansing
Re: Tony Briscoe’s Jan. 8 report, “Ex-treasurer Dillon still gets full pay after resigning state position”: Corruption is the hallmark of modern day politics at at almost every level of government, as this story illustrates. And there is easily enough shame to go around to almost all of whom are in federal and state government. Sad, very sad.

The game is rigged
More good ‘ol boy shenanigans. Some things never change. Never met a pol who didn’t land on his feet, except for Kwame Kilpatrick, but that was way different.

Put away the pitchforks
Andy Dillon’s done a great job and he’s helping transition the next person in.
He will be an asset wherever he goes next and his success so far will surely lead to even greater financial reward for his skills. Welcome to America.

Snyder not so different
Great reporting, shows what the GOP is truly about, taxes on pensions and 81 percent pay raises for the anointed.

Divorced from reality
Comparing the salaries of politicians and their appointees to reality is like trying to do the same with professional sports salaries. Neither are based in reality. Only in sports and politics can you get paid crazy money to just go away.

Nice work, if you can lose it
Can we all do this? Quit our position and make the same amount without the title or hassle of needing to come in day to day? What a crock.
