ABC15 - Former DES chief Tim Jeffries breaks silence about employee firings and politics

Wrongly fired DES chief Tim Jeffries tells his side of the story to ABC15 in this video interview. He did what the governor told him to do - unlike most agency heads - eliminated 2 percent of the agency by firing several hundred employees who were stealing and doing other unethical things. Since his firing, the state has said it is hiring back 40 of those employees. Tim says he knows a handful of them and it is the wrong thing to do.

It was a "manufactured crisis" that led up to his firing, done in a Machiavellian way, pushed by the dishonest Arizona Republic, which has an agenda against Christians and conservatives. The Department of Administration knew exactly what he was doing and approved of all of the firings! Thousands of DES employees support him. He's heard from over 1,000 sympathetic DES employees since he was fired.

This is no way near over yet. Tim will eventually be vindicated, and hopefully some heads will roll at the Repugnant over the worst yellow journalism I think I've ever seen. Tim was a top reformer in state government like this state has never seen before - and the remaining honest and ethical employees will back him up.

Stay tuned, tomorrow I will post his interview with CBS4AZ, which refutes the bogus accusation that he was "stockpiling" guns at DES.
