Revealed: Civil servant
working two full time public jobs,
70 miles apart - netting a salary
higher than the Vice President´s

Daily Mail [UK], by Staff

A Michigan civil servant is in hot water after being exposed as holding down two six-figure public posts at the same time - earning him more than the Vice President. Barnett Jones, has been paid $273,750 since May as Flint´s administrator of public safety and head of security for the Detroit Water and Sewerage Department, despite the fact the posts are both full-time and based 70 miles apart, according to the Free Press. The lawman resigned his Flint role today after the newspaper began investigating his job-juggling. Flint City Administrator, Michael Brown, told the Press he wasn´t aware

Comments:
A small glimpse at those rigorous, high-paid civil servant jobs; collect checks for two full-time gigs and no one notices.

Hardly fair to compare this man with the vice president, though; Biden´s efforts are not worth even a chuckle, much less a salary.

More proof that public employees are seriously underworked.

On the upside, on heavy snow days when they require only essential personnel to report to work, he can stay home from both jobs.

Nobody really keeps track on this type person,showing up for work or not. When he´s missing people just figure he´s away on business or something. He´s obviously not crucial to to either job so he freely floats back and forth.Perfect example of someone helping themselves to reparations and of course he didn´t realize it wasn´t a problem.

Not all is lost,he´ll pop back up as a consultant,another way the left loots the taxpayers.

Retired gov´t workers get rehired as consultants all the time because they didn´t train anyone to take their place.

Just a little research shows two full time salaries and at least two retirements and probably three if Social Security is included. He will not be prosecuted as he is one of Eric Holders people and looks like Obamas sons.

This involved the cities of Flint, MI and Detroit, MI. Flint City Administrator, Michael Brown, said he would be open to using Barnett Jones as a consultant. Apparently, the people for whom Barnett worked think he did a fine job. Is it any wonder that Flint and Detroit are in such bad shape. What a bunch of goofballs.

Wow so he was able to work two jobs and wasn´t stealing the wages from anyone. Isn´t working as many jobs as one wishes still a right in this nation?
OOps I guess he is being dissed because he is a black over achieving worker living off a strange welfare--- called willing to work.

#13 Many people work full time jobs and supplement their income with part time jobs. However, it´s never ok to lead both employers to think they are getting a full time employee when they are not. Maybe both of the positions should be part time positions in which case he isn´t deceiving anyone. There is something dishonest about this situation.

Really? Well who kept his time card, his sick leave, his vacation time??? Is there some fraud involved??? Seems to me that both jobs were done on a part time basis so why not downgrade both jobs to part time work? Not only employ TWO people but reduce the expense of the salaries by half...Who the heck were the ´part time´ supervisors and why should their inability to see the debacle not reflect on their ´supervisory´ ability???

Can´t deny he was ambitious. However, as a civil servant, he is getting health benefits at both jobs. At his age, it´s not cheap.

Why are there so many unemployed ? This man took two jobs. Many in this area working for the county and state have been on the job for 25 years or more; some up to 45 years. If they retired at twenty years, another person would have a job. Many retire from one job, collect pensions and start another civil service job. Think what this does to the pension system.

Try to remember he was also a cop.

The Internal Revenue Service is demanding that Ron Paul´s Campaign for Liberty organization hand over its list of contributors, and has fined the non-profit organization $12,900 for failing to give names on its annual IRS filing.

Schools in Birmingham are illegally segregating pupils, discriminating against non-Muslim students and restricting the GCSE syllabus to “comply with conservative Islamic teaching”, an official report leaked to The Telegraph discloses. Department for Education inspectors said that girls in a school at the centre of the so-called “Trojan Horse” plot were forced to sit at the back of the class, some Christian pupils were left to “teach themselves” and an extremist preacher was invited to speak to children. The report, into three schools in the city, follows weeks of controversy over the alleged plot to “Islamise” secular schools in Birmingham

The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

A group of seven multiracial Washington and Lee University (W&L) students are demanding the school remove all Confederate flags from campus and "acknowledge" General Robert E. Lee´s "dishonorable side." According to the Roanoke Times, "seven multiracial students, calling themselves ´The Committee,´" have also demanded the school "acknowledge and apologize for participating in chattel slavery." They want recognition of "Martin Luther King Jr. Day on the undergraduate campus" and an end to "neo-Confederates" marching across campus "to the Lee Chapel on Lee-Jackson Day." The students say they will "engage in civil disobedience" if their demands are not met by September 1st. They added: "The

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after
