Chad Livengood continues to do a great job hounding Delaware’s government. Today, the News Journal is reporting that the Feds have cleared Senate Pro Tem Tony DeLuca (D – miscellaneous) of federal charges. What he wasn’t cleared of was not doing his job. From the article:
DeLuca’s job description, agency organizational charts, budgetary documents from the past six years and other documents reviewed by The News Journal also suggested DeLuca was supposed to be in charge of discrimination investigations.
However, according to the Federal investigators:
Office of Special Counsel investigators could find no direct evidence that DeLuca directed the expense of a federal funds for a discrimination contract with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
So Governor Markell has allowed a state employee to work for him for two years without doing his job. I know that they’re now under collective bargaining and so there is a grievance procedure, but it seems like there is at least one government worker who is unnecessary.
