But no link to the report? That's why newspapers aren't doing well.
Holy cow! A bloated and overreaching government is corrupt? Who'da thunk it possible?!?
I realize that not all state employees commit fraud and bribery and pad their time cards but if you all out there are going to sit around and let this happen, then we are all going down with this once beautiful state of California.
The politicians and those in state legislature that fill a position that we in California really cannot afford and do not need then what are we doing?
We as the people of California should not stand for this and should really do something about it.
There has been too much undisclosed, scamming the tax payers for way too long.
Is there someone out there that can come together and realize that this system is just not working.
We can go to work and come home and manage our lives day to day but this behavior with our state politicians will ruin this state!!!!
...They're just doing what the legislators are doing...
So where is the list... so I can be shocked
It's a mirror image of our own county. In the past six months we have had 2 Government employees making, I believe, over 6 figures each, arrested for grand theft and embezzlement. The Columbia fire chief Nickley on embezelment(court on the 17th) only because he showed up to a fire drunk. Otherwise he would still be a pillar of the community.
And The county transportation planner Mahesh Sukumar charge with grand theft. He had so little to do at his position he ran a full time business from work!
And if we want to go back over the years we have a long list. People please stop voting yes on new taxes and bonds we're being played for suckers....because we are. And if you dare mention anything about cops, firefighters or teachers you are of the devil and heavily chastised.
The unions will protect these crooks just like they did in Detroit with the drunken drug users building American cars. Any federal, State or Local government employee caught cheating, lying, stealing or defrauding their employer ( the 53% that pay taxes ) should get mandatory prison and stripped of all benefits no matter their party affiliation.
Rick: How can you close me up? On what grounds?
Captain Renault: I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here!
[a croupier hands Renault a pile of money]
Croupier: Your winnings, sir.
Captain Renault: [sotto voce] Oh, thank you very much.
Captain Renault: Everybody out at once!
Who woulda thunk it?
Gee wiz guy your are talking about our beloved state employees, come on give them a break. They are not paid to actually produce results of any kind, just there to pick up and check and a hell of a good retirement??? WE ARE JUST JEALOUS !!
