The feds are looking into the possibility that sanitation workers may have committed crimes by deliberately slowing down work in the early stages of the blizzard cleanup, according to law enforcement sources.
One example includes YouTube video of three sanitation trucks allegedly parked for many hours outside a Dunkin Donuts, while workers sat inside drinking coffee.
Concerns were also raised that City Hall may have been leaderless when the blizzard hit, according to a front page story in Wednesday's Daily News. Mayor Bloomberg, who often visits his Bermuda getaway on weekends, refused to say if he was away for the holiday weekend. The deputy mayor usually tasked with snow cleanup -- Stephen Goldsmith -- was away in Washington. Another deputy mayor, Howard Wolfson, was vacationing in London.
This potential leadership vacuum has led City Councilman Peter Vallone (D-Queens) to consider proposing a law requiring the mayor to formally notify the city clerk when he's out of town and has named a temporary replacement.Answer Question

All union workers? or the ones being investigated? Why would any old union worker be charged for something that was allegedly done by sanitation workers?
