KLEPT, ending ghost payrolling

I have a simple way to end ghost payrolling.

Illinois should pass a law that if you turn-in the ghost payroller you get a bounty, say 30% of the money the ghost payroller pilfered.

Then the government gets to sue the ghost payroller, the supervisor and the political patron to recover the money, the bounty and court costs.


  • We have a law that basically does that. It is called the Recovery of Fraudulently Obtained Public Funds Act, 735 ILCS 5/20‑101, et. seq.

    The Illinois Supreme Court struck the law down as it applies to state employees, but it is still good law for county and municipal employees.
