Lawmakers Look Into Why Andy Dillon Got Paid After Resigning

Posted: Updated:

(WLNS) - Democratic state lawmakers are calling for an investigation into former State Treasurer Andy Dillon and the role he played in the governor's administration after he resigned.

The governor's office says after Dillon resigned in October he stayed on the staff as an advisor to the new treasurer.

Some lawmakers haven taken issue with the fact that Dillon was paid his same $174,000 salary that he made as treasurer.

Dillon was to be paid through Jan. 31, but he went on a cruise in late January.

Now lawmakers on the other side of the aisle are calling for an investigation.

"This governor has said for ages that he is all about transparency and effective use of dollars. We have got a director who the governor went to a retirement party back in October and is still making $174,000 beyond that retirement party. We want a full investigation," said State Sen. Gretchen Whitmer, (D), Lansing.

We'll have much more on this story including the governor's reaction tonight on 6 News at 5.
