Susan Muranishi has hit the jackpot! Once she retires she's set to receive $423,644 a year for the rest of her life. However, Susan Muranishi hasn't won the lottery.

No, instead she's a California politician. She is an Alameda County administrator.

Like a football superstar, she even has a clause in her contract guaranteeing she'll be the highest-paid team member.

This is a classic example of what I like to refer to as politicking for profit. After all, why spend money on a lottery you have no real chance of winning when you could just become some faceless bureaucrat in a systems awash in other people's money? That way you don't have to quit your job in order to get rich while doing nothing.

Well, at least, until your government goes bankrupt like the nearby town of Stockton.
