Description

This investigation found that Allegheny County has paid out more than $1.5 million since 1996 to end lawsuits filed by fired employees who claimed politics cost them their jobs. The newspaper found that after every recent change in the county's administration, the newly elected officials have fired employees who claimed they had been dismissed for their political support of the prior administration.
