You know, the one I complained about a few months ago. Just to give you an all an update:
He was arrested on Jan. 20 for "pandering," otherwise known as soliciting a prostitute. He was arrested in a hotel that's about a mile from our office. In other words, he hooked up with a prostitute in the same damn county he works in...
Needless to say, he was fired the next day. We found out because the sheriff's (the sheriff's office houses the county jail) wife works at the county school system. She works in the department our former editor works in, so she told him. Our former editor told us the morning she found out. The morning after he was arrested, he sent me a text asking me how to go and pull incident reports for all the city police departments. He said he was going to do it so he can familiarize himself when I'm on vacation.
Obviously, he wanted to pull the police reports so he can catch the report before I looked over the incident log to pull it. It would ensure that I would not have found out.
We also had to write about it and publish his arrest the next day. We would have looked like we were hiding something if we didn't write the story.
So, there you have it. My boss was a drunken mess and no one took me and my co-workers seriously until it blew up in their faces.
I'll be back on tomorrow to talk more about these shenanigans
