PHOENIX (AP) — The U.S. Attorney for Arizona has found no evidence that Arizona's pension fund for public safety workers committed criminal misconduct when it valued some real estate properties in its $6.2 billion portfolio, pension officials announced Monday.
The board chairman for the Public Safety Personnel Retirement System, Brian Tobin, said the decision by the US Attorney for Arizona closes the books on the yearlong investigation of the pension fund.
The FBI and U.S. attorney's office launched the probe last year into whether real estate values were inflated to boost performance bonuses awarded to some senior investment managers. The allegations were brought to the attention of prosecutors by former pension system employees.
"This was and is a serious allegation," Tobin said. "It's not true and it never was true."
Tobin said the investigation, and two others done by its independent auditing firm and the Arizona Auditor General that also cleared the pension fund, are examples of the system's checks and balances working correctly.
Board lawyer James Belanger said the Justice Department is completing a review of several people he would not identify. But he said he expects they'll be cleared as well.
The pension plan released a letter from the U.S. attorney to Belanger confirming the decision. Cosme Lopez, spokesman for U.S. Attorney for Arizona John Leonardo, confirmed the contents of the letter but could not comment on any additional reviews.
The pension plan for public safety employees is facing a massive shortfall between its assets and what it expects to owe police and firefighters across the state when they retire. The latest projection as of June 30 shows $12.2 billion in liabilities compared to just $6.2 billion in assets.

We will never see them again. They were a cadre that is rapidly disappearing. But not long ago, priests from Ireland ran the Catholic Church in Arizona. Between 1945 and 1970, 54 newly ordained left the Emerald Isle to minister in our growing state. In addition to these permanent clergy, an additional 44 temporarily worked here during that time.

Dear Gilbert Public Schools Board Members and Dr. Kishimoto,
The election silly season is over and the Santa silly season is upon us. Tens of thousands of swindlers are sharpening up their spiels to separate you from your hard-earned money. They break your heart with pictures of ragged children, trash-strewn alleys or whatever. “You can save a child for $7.23.”

A 55-plus community in Mesa is expanding its property to include room for new recreational areas.
Long ago, it was determined that monopolies by companies such as Bell Telephone and Standard Oil were not in the best interest of our country. Competition was almost nonexistent and prices and policies were decided by a very few. This monopolistic juggernaut still exists today in our Arizona state government.
Thanksgiving is coming.
Don’t listen to the right-wing pundits who claim “the American people have spoken” regarding Tuesday’s election results and the Republicans winning so many offices. The real winners are the Koch brothers and those hidden financiers funding Karl Rove’s various enterprises. They are the ones who spent tens of millions of dollars on the negative campaign ads that flooded our airwaves with their lies and distortions about the Democrats’ candidates. These are the people running our country now because the Republicans who benefited from their money will soon have to pay the piper. The “dark money” powers now have the best government money can buy.
