This article reports that Nancy Workman, mayor of Salt Lake County, Utah, was placed on paid leave last week pending the outcome of a criminal trial on charges she misused taxpayer money. Workman was charged by district attorney David Yocum with one second-degree and one third-degree felony count of misusing taxpayer money. The charges stem from placing the salaries of two people who worked for the South Valley Boys and Girls Club in the county Health Department budget. Workman has alleged that Yocum concocted the charges to cost her the election.
