A ranking Broward County Transit official has resigned amid an internal corruption and waste investigation triggered by a whistleblower’s complaint.
Lorin S. Swirsky, transit manager for information technology, had been suspended without pay since June 3 after county investigators determined he lied about having a computer science degree from the University of Miami.
“He made the choice to resign. He called me personally,” said Broward Transportation Director Chris Walton.
Swirsky was fingered in a whistleblower complaint submitted to the county in March that includes other, more serious allegations.
