Franklin, do you really think that you can make officials believe that you didn't know anything about the K9 deputies being underpaid? Can you truly stand up in front of the clerks, the DOL, and whomever else may have an interest in determining the degree that employees have been underpaid and try to make them believe that you knew nothing about the payroll errors?
What would a MCSO employee stand to gain by shorting employee's pay week after week, month after month, year after year? Nothing.....

What would a commander in chief stand to gain by underpaying employees? Payroll checks are written at the County Commission Office so it can't be about cash flow. A balanced budget makes the boss look good. The boss can impress their peers, state organizations, the county commission, and the citizens with their ability to balance the budget during significant budget cuts.
In the meantime the boss spends money building an empire, playing horse and pony shows, traveling, being a no show commander in chief, and ensuring your employee's live near the poverty line. In addition to duplicating efforts such as managing your own dispatch at the sume of $400,000.00. If the stories we have heard are true, Franklin may want to hold on to the $400,000.00 to pay back pay.
