City Of Dallas Looks To "Clawback" Ill-

• zerohedge.com by Tyler Durden

Almost exactly one month after taking the unprecedented step of suspending withdrawals from the Dallas Police and Fire Pension (DPFP), the Dallas city council is looking to "clawback" what it views as ill-gotten interest payments made to pensioners to the tune of roughly $1 billion.

Of course, we have followed the epic meltdown of the DPFP closely over the past several months after a series of shady real estate deals brought the fund to, in the words of Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings, "the verge of collapse" and resulted in an FBI raid of one of the funds largest real estate investors (see "Dallas Cops' Pension Fund Nears Insolvency In Wake Of Shady Real Estate Deals, FBI Raid").  The discovery of the failed real estate deals led to a "run on the bank" as scared pensioners looked to withdraw as much as possible before the whole ponzi scheme collapsed (see "After A "Run On The Pension Fund" Dallas Mayor Demands Halt Of Withdrawals").  All of which culminated with the unprecedented decision last month to suspend withdrawals (see "In Unprecedented Move, Dallas Pension System Suspends Withdrawals") after nearly $500mm was removed from police accounts.
