D.C. fire chief doing double duty?

By Washington Post editors

The Washington Times reports a story sure to stir outrage among fiscal watchdogs in the District. D.C. deputy fire chief, Kenneth Ellerbe recently took a new job as chief of the Sarasota County Fire Department in Florida. But get this: he is still a member of the D.C. fire department. He's apparently been placed "on leave without pay" so he can meet the rquirement to start collecting on his D.C. pension when he turns 50. The paper reports that while Ellerbe is eligible for the pension based on his years of service, he is not old enough to collect. Read more of David C. Lipsomb's story here.
