That's absolutely disgraceful! He should be made to pay back all of his salary AND do jail time. l wonder did this guy not have to report to a superior or someone whose responsibility it was to check that the work was being done? Complete mismanagement if he didn't! Recio's actions were criminal because by not doing any work, he was blatantly stealing from the government for 10 years! There are plenty of hard working, honest people out there that have to work two jobs and they get paid a lot less than he did!
No wonder they say that government jobs are 'cushy', some more than others :-)
