Intimidating. Threatening. Abrasive. Those are the words that co-workers of Diana Frey use to describe her, according to a report in Cincinnati.com. Frey has been in the news in Ohio for having been caught stealing $757,000 from the Cincinnati Organized and Dedicated Employees Union, which she led. Frey was not only able to get away with wire fraud, but also long stretches of absenteeism. Frey's antics are receiving attention because of the extreme nature of her actions, but her behavior is of a piece with her times.
