Survivor of retired gay Congressman not entitled to survivor's benefits

The most telling part of this article is the last one:
Nevertheless, Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio) who pled guilty last week to conspiracy charges and faces up to 10 years in prison for taking bribes will receive about $29,000 a year from his pension for the rest of his life - even while he is in prison.

Not much one can say about the ridiculousness of this decision.
