Homeless Dump Asbestos

Two businessmen have been indicted by a Charlottesville jury for conspiring to get workers to remove asbestos from Staunton buildings and illegally dispose of it. Turns out that these Einsteins — Dr. David Stephen Klein and Josef Gene Weiss — recruited homeless men from Staunton to remove asbestos by slicing it out of the walls with razor blades, lacking any safety equipment. They were directed to then dump the dangerous substance in various dumpsters, including one at Buffalo Gap High School. The two men are facing millions of dollars in fines. Adrienne Schwisow has the story in today’s Progress.
