Men at Work

Five Tucson city employees have resigned or were fired after an investigation revealed they had used city equipment and materials for personal gain.

City officials allege the workers performed side jobs for personal gain at the city's expense, and that a Department of Transportation leader "treated the Streets division as a personal enterprise."

The activities went on for at least eight years, dating to 2004, city documents said.

Roberto De Vido writes cartoons and comics about politics, sports (and life) from a small fishing and farming village an hour southwest of Tokyo.
