Canyon County Corruption Continues

This time it is a Nampa City employee, but the pattern of government thievery apparently continues in Canyon County.

Nampa reports discovering $30,000 missing from deposits made on behalf of the city prior to March. The Ada County Prosecutor is investigating…since Nampa has had its own problems with a deal at the Canyon prosecutor office.

In recent memory we have reported on two crooks at the Canyon DMV office making off with a combined total of over $600,000, the sheriff’s posse bookkeeper stealing cash, the prosecutor pocketing cash, and other public employees terminated for dipping into the public honey pot.

The logical question is this: “Are there more crooks in Canyon local governments or do they just get caught more than in other jurisdictions?”

    Why this is just outragous . City Attorney has to work over 100 hours to get away with that much

  2. Perhaps it is time for some long overdue internal controls aka good accounting practices to stop all this nonsense with public money. In the last year taxpayers have been fleeced of over $1MM bucks and this demonstrates there is no end in sight.

    Gypsies in the Palace are hauling away everything not nailed down.

  3. Canyon County, most solid Republican county in Idaho. Why am I not surprised? I would also suspect that Canyon County also employs the most illegal aliens of all counties in Idaho.
