Former employees of the Webb County tax office have filed suit claiming that their firings were retaliatory for not participating in the forced gambling that the longtime boss of the office allegedly required of all his employees. The lawsuit alleges that the boss required all employees to take part in mandatory football pools, sell raffle tickets for trips to Vegas and other related activities. Used car dealerships and other businesses that bought these raffle tickets were given red carpet treatment, such as waived late fees on taxes. Six employees refused to participate in these illegal activities and, as the lawsuit claims, were allegedly fired because of it. Two other former employees of the Webb County tax office were allegedly fired for refusing to put bumper stickers for their boss on their personal cars.
