Cravaak collects disability from his union job

http://www.mnprogressiveproject.com/diary/9929/cravaack...

Rep. Chip Cravaack (R-MN/NH) used to be a pilot for Northwest Airlines. But he developed sleep apnea and went on disability. This was a pretty decent salary negotiated by his pilot's union. He'll receive disability until 2024.
Cravaack gets paid $174,000 for representing Minnesota's Eighth district while living in Washington, DC and New Hampshire.

Cravaack also receives income from his disability pay.

Cravaack's earned income for fiscal year 2010 topped out at $92,273; the cash comes in the form of disability payments for sleep apnea, which ended his flying career with Northwest Airlines, now Delta Airlines, in 2007.
According to the documents, Cravaack has between $843,219 and $1,696,000 in assets and unearned income, including stocks and retirement savings. (Assest value is reported in ranges rather than exact numbers.) (MPR)


Double dipping rules! Get paid to represent MN-08, live in DC & New Hampshire plus get paid to not fly airplanes. $250,000+ to occasionally come back to Minnesota.
