Suspended D.C. firefighter still getting paid
A D.C. firefighter on leave pending an investigation for possible misconduct has been paid for not showing up at work for more than two years, WTOP reports.
According to documents obtained by WTOP, D.C. Fire Chief Dennis Rubin received a complaint from the NoMa Business Improvement District saying Natalie O. Williams, a firefighter, had sent an invoice to the company for CPR training provided by the fire department but allegedly requested the payment be made to an individual -- her -- rather than the department.
According to Fire and EMS spokesperson Pete Piringer, after an internal investigation, the matter was referred to the office of the D.C. Inspector General. Williams was placed on leave in September 2008. Since then, Williams has not been charged and has continued to receive her annual salary of $72,125.
