Mass. State Police boss launches probe into union-related payroll fraud allegations

The Boston Globe reports:
The head of the Massachusetts State Police has launched an investigation into new accusations of trooper payroll fraud, alleging some members used the union as an excuse to take paid leave.

Colonel Kerry Gilpin said an initial review found troopers were using a taxpayer-funded time-off benefit, afforded to union members, for illegitimate purposes, according to a letter she issued late last month tothe State Police Association of Massachusetts, or SPAM.
These well paid folks continue to make news.
