WGNTV.com has an article about Chicago firefighters and paramedics being suspended as a result of a 2009 investigation.

The Chicago Fire Department has suspended 16 more firefighters and paramedics for falsifying claims for mileage reimbursement; a 17th firefighter has already retired. In 2009, the firefighters together collected more than $35,000 in reimbursements for miles they never actually drove; they’ll be suspended for between 30 and 45 days. The city’s inspector general has recommended they be fired, but it’s unlikely they’ll lose their jobs.
