Clark County Firefighters Sick Leave Scandal

The Clark County Firefighters are facing even more problems now that their emails have been released. They seem to show a clear pattern of manipulating leave entitlements so that firefighters could take a month or more off of work. The scandal has embarrassed the Clark County Commission, which signed off on the original contracts and did not notice the manipulation until the recession struck. But it has also split the commission. Commissioner Steve Sisolak wants Metro and the FBI to investigate the firefighters for fraud, but Commissioner Tom Collins says that the firefighters were only taking what they were entitled to and that they should not be scapegoated now.
