The "obese, hooker-happy" former Port Authority union president who admitted in court earlier this week to embezzling over $300,000 from his union is planning on retiring—and may still be eligible for a disability pension, even if he is convicted. Daniel Hughes retired in January as president of the local Field Supervisors Association, and went on sick leave due to poor health and weight reduction surgery. Hughes earned just under $100,000 a year at his job, not counting the money he stole during a five-year period. One anonymous source told the Post, "There’s no question in my mind that this guy will file for a disability pension. I’d be very surprised if he didn’t."

Meanwhile, more sad details behind-the-scenes emerged, as the Daily News tracked down Hughes wife's brother, Rafael Moran, who claims Margarita Hughes never knew anything about her husband's exploits: "[She] is destroyed by the situation. She had no idea he was doing this. He did this in secret. She doesn't know what to do." And to add insult to injury, the News quotes one police officer who questions the gender of the prostitutes whom the father of an 11-year-old was seeing: "It's unclear who he was meeting with, men or women."
