Holding Government Officials Accountable

Earlier, I stated that individuals with much responsibility should have a substantial amount of money held in an account that they should only be able to spend after we have sufficient time to determine how well they discharged their responsibilities>.

This issue came up in spades with the attempt to hold top government officials liable in civil suits for their role in unlawful detentions, torture, and abuse in the "War against Terror." What if instead of paying government officials well and giving them a nice retirment pension, most of this money goes into an account. A sortition jury would determine when and how much they can spend, otherwise it accumulates interest or just grows.
