What Other Lies Are Being Told By PSPRS’ Management?

PSPRS’ Administrator James Hacking hid the truth from the Arizona Department of Administration’s Director, Brian McNeil, for over six months regarding the existence of illegal pay raises to Investment Department Chief of Staff Mark Steed, Shan Chen, Mark Lundin, Deputy CIO Marty Anderson, and Vaida Maleckaite.

Why take this risk knowing that a FBI criminal probe was ongoing?  Was this hush money?

Wikipedia – Hush money is a slang term for a form of bribery, in which one person or party offers another an attractive sum of money or other enticement, in exchange for remaining silent about some illegal, stigmatic, or shameful behavior, action, or other fact about the person or party who has made the offer
