Description

An investigation that took a year and a half revealed that New York City Correction Department employees were forced to work on Republican political campaigns. In the 1990's, correction officials supporting Republicans were awarded with promotions and better assignments. On the other hand, any employee working for Democrats got 'whacked', or sent to dangerous jobs or forces to retire. As a result to this investigation, the main perpetrator was indicted on 146 counts of grand larceny and violating conflicts of interest laws.
