Another good reason for ongoing screening
May 6, 2008
ATLANTA — More than 40 employees have been fired from the Georgia Department of Transportation for a wide array of misconduct including incidents of assault, drugs pornography and nudity, since the new DOT Commissioner took charge.
Through an open records request WSB-TV Channel 2 obtained documents from the DOT that in some cases read like a police report.
“I had just received a plethora of employee issues that just were absolutely unacceptable,” said DOT commissioner Gena Abraham.
When the new DOT commissioner came under fire for admitting to a romantic relationship with the DOT board chairman some called her a hypocrite for releasing a memo holding her employees to the highest moral and ethical standards.
But documents obtained by WSB-TV Channel 2 may justify the need for the memo.
