Let’s stick to appraising property.
Staffers for an Orange County, Fla., property appraiser say they didn’t appreciate being asked to cover for him when he brought strippers to work. They also didn’t care for his alleged assessment of those women as “skanks” with “fat –ses.”
Two former government employees filed suit against their boss Rick Singh, accusing him of misconduct after he fired them, according to CBS Action News in Jacksonville.
Communication director Laverne McGee alleged she was ordered to flirt with vendors and forge documents while financial worker Aisha Hassan said she was instructed to shred documents that could be problematic in the event of an audit.
The lawsuit accuses Singh of bilking taxpayers out of thousands of dollars for personal trips as well as hotel and flight upgrades. Both women are seeking compensation for lost wages after Singh allegedly fired them for poor performance.
Singh’s office denied the accusations to the Orlando Weekly and claimed the suit is an attempt to besmirch the appraiser.
“These allegations are completely baseless and clearly made with the sole intention of damaging Mr. Singh personally,” the office said in a statement. “Mr. Singh vehemently denies these malicious attacks on his character.”
The OCPA also said that an investigation into McGee and Hassan’s claims found “no evidence” of wrongdoing by Singh.
