You’d think that cleaning up and then running the Cook County Medical Examiner's office, which now pays $300,000 a year, would be a full-time job. But the newly designated medical examiner, Dr. Stephen J. Cina, whose selection was announced Tuesday, also has a long-time lucrative side job as a forensic pathology consultant for high-profile lawsuits, pulling down $5,000 a day, plus expenses. A job he plans to keep....
“We allow our employees to have second jobs, as long as they don’t conflict with county work,” Democrat Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle said.
The 1% royalty of the public employee class strikes again. BTW - Cina doesn't even have a license to practice medicine in Illinois, so he cannot sign death certificates.
Your tax dollars hard at work.
