Sadly, as long as her inflated salary is not the result of illegal activities, there's nothing that can be done about paying her equally inflated pension benefits - - - short of Alameda declaring bankruptcy and successfully re-negotiating employee pension plans.
However, I don't see why the state couldn't pass a very specific tax law such that her pension benefits are subject to a 99% income tax. Pension benefits are effectively deferred compensation for work performed in California, so it's arguable they could be taxed even if she moves out of state. This would probably receive broad support as a voter referendum.

You know that these bleeding heart liberals will just move to Texas with their benefits and CA will receive 0 of it since it will all be spent in other states, while CA just pays these people.
It's a giant scam against CA.
