    When the government steals, every tax payer feels they can as well. I'm sure the man we elected in the White House has taken a lot more than that. Theft is wrong at any level....whether it's 15 cents, $15, $15,000, or $15Million.

    Sad to say but this is what Sarah Palin got rid of in her State and got a lot of flak because of her moral values but soon she will run for President and when she does,may by then people will wake up.

    She started working for the town of LaGrange in January 1986. If she stole $15,000 in a year and a half. I wonder how much she stole between 1986 to 2006 ?? They will just slap her on the wrist and let her go. Sounds like she might be the one that profits out of this!

    Lucy....that is a very good question. Someone else needs to be held responsible also. This is one more example of failed Govt.

    Seems the checks and balances of this city department, failed terribly. Why does this just now come to light when it took place between 2006 and 2007? Do they not audit yearly?
