Five officials in Bernard Lord's Conservative government each received more than their annual salaries in paycheques and severance packages in the year they were bought out by the new Liberal government in New Brunswick.
The province's latest public accounts report, released Tuesday, revealed what each of them received in the last fiscal year.
The five Tory partisans had been serving in senior bureaucratic and Crown corporation jobs. Each of them worked about half of the fiscal year, then accepted buyouts after Shawn Graham's Liberals won the October 2006 election.
