John Hummel, who is running for D.A. says there have been four former employees who have sued the county for unfair firings -- and it's cost the county a lot of money.
"Three years Patrick's been in office and he's mismanaged 1.4 million dollars and that's not including Sharon Sweet which we expect will cost $300,000 to $400,000 dollars. I just think about what we could have used that money for. It's been unfortunate it's been squandered on Patrick's mismangement."
Sharon Sweet was a former investigator who sued Flaherty for discriminating against her and wrongly firing her.
The election for D.A. will be decided on May 20th.
