A city audit of the Cleveland Fire Department show that oversight of firefighters was apparently so lax that some got paid without working. Others fixed their schedules so they could live as far away as California and still be a full time firefighter in Cleveland. A second audit is underway to determine the scope of abuses and the cost to taxpayers. We'll talk about what happened, whether abuses are widespread and what the city intends to do about it, Thursday at 9:00.
