This guy is still getting paid by the taxpayers, instead of being fired and off the books in the real world. For theft of taxpayer money and forgery, he should be in jail, not on paid vacation.

I work in the public sector and I want to see this guy gone more than you. It is stories like these that give all public servants a bad name. Its not fair to be lumped in with graft each time one person screws up, but that's what happens.

Just like Kasich told the Highway Patrol yesterday.......you had better "get it together". Kasich will not tolerate this kind of crap........just watch. All State employees had better ramp up the effort.
