Feds Probe Sanitation Workers' Snow Sabotage
Uh-oh. The Daily News says federal prosecutors are investigating claims that sanitation workers sabotaged last week's blizzard clean-up efforts to protest budget cuts. The New York Post previously reported that sanitation workers had confessed to a city councilman they'd been ordered to take their time plowing snow off city streets, and while the U.S. Attorney's office wouldn't confirm or deny anything to the News, "sources" tell the paper feds will "examine whether the wire or mail fraud statues were violated by pocketing overtime pay during an illegal job action." Oops. [SH]
