Description

Cincinnati's Director of Public Services mismanaged his department, including firing or reprimanding some employees while giving others a slap on the wrist for the same offense. This unfairness led some employees to take pay cuts just to transfer out of his department. The reporters uncovered that those who received preferential treatment were often those who socialized with the director outside of work. The director was later demoted and transferred to the Parks Department in the wake of the investigation.
