Nice work if you can get it

Looks like Carl Monday has uncovered another example of patronage in county government -- another politically connected person getting paid to do not much at all. Channel 19's infamous hidden cameras follow Pat O'Malley's brother, Kevin O'Malley, as he washes his car, buys baked goods and shovels his driveway on county time. He allegedly works at the county archives, but the county archivist can't explain his whereabouts.

I've met plenty of smart, conscientious county workers. They must get pretty angry about working when others don't.
