​When Tony Crapp Jr. walked away from the Miami city manager job on Monday -- leaving unsolved a gaping $40 million budget gap and a troubled police force -- he got a nice parting gift from Magic City taxpayers.

Crapp left City Hall with a handsome $155,000 severance package, Riptide has learned. Adios, Tony!

Crapp's payout comes from unused vacation and sick leave stockpiled during his 14-plus years with the city, mostly as an aide to Mayor Tomas Regalado.

His 362 hours of vacation equal $32,197 and 462 hours of unused sick leave are worth $41,090. Crapp's contract as city manager also included a clause guaranteeing two months of paid administrative leave with health insurance, which he cashed out for another $42,691, according to city payroll documents.

Crapp's severance package is the second nice payout in the last two weeks for a hastily departing bureaucrat; Blogger Al Crespo reports that Larry Spring -- who resigned as the city's chief financial officer on June 9th -- got $125,734 on his way out the door.

Meanwhile, City Hall's finest minds are banging their heads against the wall this morning trying to figure out how to clean up the financial mess Spring and Crapp opted to walk away from.

Hmmm, if only there was a quick, easy way to get back $270,000 for taxpayers ...

Herald reports on June 29th that Tony Crapp was plotting how to steal the taxpayers money since at least February of 2011.

Crapp - "Public service? More like public theft."

Michael Putney hammers Tony Crapp and Larry Spring in a June 26th Editorial. Putney blasts Miami for facing a $50 Mil deficit and then letting the City Manager walk out the door stealing over $200,000.

Novice Mayor Regalado makes a rookie mistake and promotes a black just to pander to the black community. The hire, based on Affirmative Action, is a joke. How much of a joke? Now the City is losing over $1 mil per week AND the punk stole money on the way out the door.

Commissioners? Oversight?

Steal 24/7
Steal 24/7

How stupid is Mayor Tomas Regalado to put novice rookie Tony Crapp in as City Manager? And why did Regalado keep disgraced Larry Spring?

Under their management (15 firemen paid $300,000+ per year and 24/7 chauffeur service for commissioners) the City is losing $1 MILLION per week.

If anyone sees novice Tony Crapp or fat Larry Spring ask them how they were able to lose the taxpayers over $1 MILLION per week?

On June 23rd City Commissioners admit Tony Crapp stole the taxpayers money to pay himself a fat $155,000 severance check and $120,000 to disgraced ex-CFO Larry Spring.

These two incompetents left the City facing a $55 MILLION deficit.

"Rats leaving a sinking ship".

On June 22nd and June 23rd even the Herald prints a story about Tony Crapp and Larry Spring, two frat bros, stealing money from the City of Miami. Illegal severance package. Written City policy expressly prohibited such theft.

There is a reason Larry Spring is called THAT MORON.

Crapp in, Crapp out - not from the City Manager, rather the corrupt political scum that hired him. Serves the people of Miami right for their indifference, apathy, and long-term commitment to doing nothing about anything to make this a better place. Except in making it into a premier third world country and giant refugee camps for Latin trash worldwide.

Crapp leaves crap

Look at the smirk on this black. He's thinking, "I am going to take these white idiots for millions".

Crapp leaves City facing a $40 MILLION deficit taking at least $155,000 PLUS a pension with him.

Disgraceful

This is why residents hate the City of Miami administrators.

$155,000 theft!
$155,000 theft!

The fire union members contract allows even more abuse.

But novice Tony getting $155,000? Theft.

Theft from taxpayers

Let's not forget the taxpayer funded pension!

No Shame, No Shame...!!!
No Shame, No Shame...!!!

Check out the smug look on Tony's face in that picture, as soon as the picture was taken, he busted out laughing at how he swindled the City of Miami taxpayers...!! He's an example of what's wrong with our country, the union contracts that "public servants" receive are raping the taxpayers who have no say in what goes on in their individual communities! The unions are slowly draining every municipality with their retirement pensions to the detriment of the average middle class citizen, who does not belong to a union and has to PAY for fat cats like Tony!! Disgraceful...!!

57.75 unused sick days?! The city of Miami needs to stop letting those roll over. Ridiculous.

His race has what to do with this? Cronyism and theft know no racial bounds in the Magic City. (See: Angel Gonzalez, Joe Gerstein, Johnny Winton and on and on ...)
