A Denver firefighter was forced to resign, and a female city employee fired, after they were caught on videotape using Denver International Airport’s state of the art, $2.5 million mobile command post for sexual escapades.
Both employees were on the clock, being paid by taxpayers, when the sexual liaisons occurred.
“This goes beyond the pale,” said Denver City Councilman Charlie Brown when he reviewed the CBS4 investigation.
“This reflects poorly on every city employee. It reinforces the image… that many people have that they (city workers) don’t have enough to do, that they’re overpaid and underworked. In this case for the people who believe that it gives them ammunition to say ‘see I told you so’ and it hurts everybody. It’s embarrassing to the city,” said Brown.
