MUNI COURT SCANDAL

Funny-money business is alleged at Springfield's Municipal Court. According to a city news release:
The investigation is being conducted by the City Manager’s Office, the Finance Department and the Human Resources Department. The Police Department also has opened an investigation into the matter.

Two Municipal Court employees have been placed on administrative leave with pay, pending the outcome of the investigation. The employees are not being named because the situation is considered a personnel matter at this point.

The amount of funding involved in the discrepancy has not yet been determined. The preliminary investigation indicates it involves a substantial amount of money paid to Municipal Court that may have been misappropriated.
Naturally, they're keeping mum. This sounds juicy.
