County Leaders catch employee abusing medical leave
more investigations in the works
MILWAUKEE-On Thursday, county officials released evidence photos that they say prove a worker commited fraud when obtaining medical leave.
County Executive Chris Abele and Sheriff David Clarke are in full agreement on the firing of the employee and are now working together to stop others from abusing the system.
I have reeled for years with bureaucrats that administer medical leave and the way they rubber stamp the approvals like they're handing out M&M's," said Sheriff Clarke.
"If your viewers are wondering, does this happen often?" said Abele, "This is just one example. It happens too often and your paying for that."
