KGO-TV in the Bay Area ran a story about a Department of Public Health conflict-of-interest job memo that said part-time retail work is OK for its employees. Reporter Laura Anthony's story says the memo suggests state workers, "... fill their furlough Fridays with work at a retail store, like Target." She interviews some state workers who say the memo insulted them.

The story also quotes a DPH official as saying that the memo was a clarification for workers thinking about pursuing part-time work -- which is different than suggesting folks work retail on their furlough days.
We'll call DPH on Monday and ask for a copy of the e-mailed memo. Check back here next week to judge it for yourself.
