PA Gambling Chief Allegedly Faked Work - Sunday 4th of December 2005

Pennsylvanias highest gambling regulator was accused of falsifying attendance records and collecting pay for hours she didnt work while executive director of Louisianas gambling control board.

The Philadelphia Inquirer reports that Anne L. Neeb, now executive director of the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board, denied the allegations Tuesday, calling them retaliation because she had reported possible corruption by Louisiana officials to the FBI.

A report by Louisiana State Inspector General Sharon B. Robinson alleged Neeb missed 208.5 hours of work that she was paid for. Neeb later submitted leave adjustments for 152 hours of the missed time.

The report asked Neeb to refund $2,700 for 57 hours it said she didnt work. Robinson said the matter was referred to the East Baton Rouge Parish District Attorneys Office.

"There is no truth to these allegations. They are completely false," Neeb said. "This is nothing more than continued retaliation against me by people angered by the fact that I voluntarily reported possible gaming corruption at the highest levels of the Louisiana state government to federal law enforcement officials."

She said she couldnt detail that investigation or who was involved.
