This WATE investigation revealed how the mayor and a tax enforcement officer for Campbell County spend time gambling out of state during the work week while on county time. The report also uncovered how the tax officer held down two outside jobs while he was supposed to be enforcing the wheel tax, a neglect of his county job duties that cost the county about $250,000 in lost education revenue. Cell phone records helped to show where and when the men were spending their time while they were supposed to be working.
