So the United States Senate, shamed by the Duke Cunningham case, voted to deny pensions for former congressman and senators convicted of:
- Bribery of public officials and witnesses (Section 201 of Title 18);
- Conspiracy to commit offense or to defraud the United States (Section 371 of Title 18);
- Perjury committed under the statues of the United States or the District of Columbia in falsely denying the commission of bribery or conspiracy; and
- Subordination of perjury committed in connection with the false denial or false testimony of another individual.
Of course, if a senator is convicted of cocaine possession, he still gets his retirement.
