The Syracuse Post Standard is reporting that the former President of Upstate Medical University is still drawing a huge salary after quitting his job.

According to the newspaper .. Dr. David Smith continues to draw a paycheck of nearly $4 thousand dollars a week from New York state .. despite resigning 2 months ago.

Dr. Smith walked away in mid november amid a state investigation. He's accused of padding his salary without the approval of his boss at the State University of New York. 

Smith's salary at the time was $363,000 .. which became $205,558 after he resigned as president, because he was still a professor at the medical school, according to documents obtained by the newspaper.
