Revoke Government Benefits for Public Servants that abuse the Public Trust

The problem with our Federal Government today is we can no longer trust our representatives to act responsibly with accountability regardless of party affiliation. My proposal would be to revoke any and all future government benefits for public representatives that are found guilty in court of law for accepting bribes and / or quid pro quo arrangements that are struck for personal gain. We currently do this in many other sectors of employ such as law enforcement and military service. I see no reason why elected officials should be treated any differently.
