Proposition C: ‘Moral’ loophole closed 

City workers who are enrolled in San Francisco’s Employees’ Retirement System, and who are convicted of any crime involving moral turpitude while on the job, will forfeit their ability to receive employer contributions to their retirement benefits following a majority voter approval of Proposition C Tuesday. Although this rule has been included in the San Francisco charter since 1966, it didn’t apply to all city-offered retirement plans — just some of them. Prop. C was written in order to fix those discrepancies, and cuts off the city’s matching contributions to those who transgress the community’s standards of morality, justice or honesty.
