Two high ranking officials are accused of hiring their daughters, and then having them laid off by subordinates so that they could collect unemployment benefits.</p><p>Speaker O&rsquo;Brien requested that all agency heads disclose any family members working within their respective departments.</p> Wed, 01 Aug 2012 16:25:35 +0000 Todd Bookman 9899 at http://nhpr.org
