Toomer Says He Wasn't Paid Enough

Posted August 21, 1997 12:00 a.m. EDT

— A former D-M-V employee who took a big-time payoff to leave his job says he wasn't paid nearly enough.

In about one hour.. Algie Toomer will go back before a State House committee. Yesterday he told the panel he was harrassed, abused, and falsely accused. He says that his 100,000 dollar payoff was *NOT* enough for what he's been through. Toomer claims he was caught up in the center of a power struggle.

I was caught in the middle..you still have me caught in the middle..being harassed from every conceivable source.

Toomer's attorneys say his constitutional rights were violated... and he still may pursue a lawsuit.
