30 More Accused of Post-Irene Fraud

A total of 74 employees will now face disciplinary charges as a result of a month-long investigation, according to the Connecticut Post.

An additional 30 state employees were implicated in the  on Thursday, bringing the total number facing disciplinary — and possibly criminal — charges to 74, according to the Connecticut Post.

Since the launch of the investigation, three of the employees have retired and one faced termination this week, a source told the CT Post.

Last month, the Malloy administration began submitting to the Department of Social Services and the Office of Labor Relations the names of state employees suspected of  to replace spoiled food after Tropical Storm Irene when they weren't qualified because of their income.

So they've identified 74 who may have been implicated in this fraudulent scheme. How many more will never be caught? Your government working hard for you! It's time to overhaul and reduce the size of government. Can you imagine the other nonsense that occurs within the government that goes unnoticed? This is really a shame and it's certainly not all government workers but since the taxpayers - many of whom are out of work - pay their salaries, this is even more of a disgrace. Yet somehow the private sector is constantly labeled as "greedy." Makes no sense. Aside from the criminal justice system, much of CT's bloated government needs to be scaled back.
