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. 

Employees implicated in the investigation will face disciplinary hearings later this month, according to the CT Post.

I'm sure the tax payers would like to see the names released. Maybe if these employee's were embarrassed for their actions, they wouldn't do this again. This is horrible. Honest people are home on unemployment jobless, loosing their cars, homes, and defaulting on other bills and here are state employees stealing from the state. It is the taxpayers that will suffer from these untrust worthy people once again. I would like to know how many of these people actually have the credentials the state now requires for them to hold the jobs they are in seeing majority of these positions call for a bachelors degree.
