A worker at a publicly-funded agency in Norfolk, Va., collected a salary and benefits for 12 years and without showing up for work, according to several City Council members.
The employee – in title only, obviously – was on the payroll at the Community Services Board, an independent agency that receives funding from the city, state and federal governments.
Womack refused to divulge the employee's name or salary.
The Board provides medication, counseling and psychiatric services to about 6,000 low-income Norfolk residents.
