Michael Silvey, property management coordinator for the Department of Public Works in Hernando County, was fired for phoning and asking for sex from two women he formerly worked with at the Southwest Florida Water Management District.

According to Josephine DiViccaro, secretary for the County Department of Human Resources, Silvey made an obscene phone call to a former district co-worker, identified only as “Carol,” in August. The next day, Silvey called DiViccaro and asked if she knew why he was calling. When DiViccaro said she didn’t, Silvey said, “I’m calling you for the same reason that I called Carol yesterday. For sex.”

DiViccaro told him he needed help. Silvey reportedly responded that he didn’t need help; he needed sex.

Hernando County fired Silvey for inappropriate conduct and violating the county’s harassment policy.
