Gandhi: Gustus Won't Get Job Back

Diane Gustus, who recently had federal fraud charges against her dropped in the D.C. Tax Office embezzlement scandal, has said she wants her job back so she can retire with a pension.

Don't count on it, D.C. Chief Financial Officer Natwar M. Gandhi said today.

"We have a lower standard of evidence" than do federal authorities, Gandhi said, noting that his office has taken its own look at Gustus's role and relationship with mastermind Harriette Walters (Gustus worked for her).

Gandhi added that his office has received a list of names from the U.S. Attorney's Office of other employees who received checks and cash from Walters and it is investigating them. They will be removed from their jobs if evidence warrants, Gandhi said, though he declined to be specific.

Gandhi: "We have a lower standard...."

Could be a slogan.
