(WTNH) -- Once accused of fraud and fired, now dozens of state workers are getting their jobs back.
"Hello Jane, from Seymour commenting on your story about the state employees, who fraudulently reported their income to get special benefits during the storm Nor'easter. Will they pay back what they stole from the state?"
"I can't believe that they're putting those state workers back in their jobs," said Christine in Wallingford. "After, stealing and I don't believe that they didn't know what they were doing. This is why we don't have any money because we're paying criminals to work in our state."
"Just goes to show you these state employees come back," said Bill in New Haven. "Crooked politicians, crooked state and federal unions. They're so crooked and corrupt that they didn't know they were doing anything wrong. Here we go. The people will pay for it again."
"Hi, this is Maurice from Connecticut. This is about the cocaine drink. I think it's horrible to have that word or phraseology on cans so kids can think it's ok to drink cocaine or even put the subliminal message in a child's mind even a human being's mind that's it's ok to have cocaine. I think that it is an outrage legislators should do something about it... first they legalized marijuana then that have the package stores open on Sundays. Now this. I think it's getting out of hand."
