    From what I can tell, the City Council here is right legally (they can fire him for whatever reason they want), but wrong morally.  In essence, the City Council asked the city manager to choose between his wife and his job. I find that EXTREMELY worrying.  Even worse, because they fired him without cause, they have to pay him six months severance plus health insurance (over $50K).  That seems really expensive.  Even worse, they said they fired him because his wife was a porn star. If I were a resident, I'd try to recall all five council members for wasting public tax $$$ like that and trying to destroy a man's family.  I think that's really messed up.

    •  They were just worried that tourist's children (0+ / 0-)

      would ask "Daddy, what's a porn star? Is Mommy a porn star too like the Mayor's wife?" and Daddy would be upset because his answer would be, "No, unfortunately Mommy's not a porn star. Mommy is definitely not a porn star."

      Jealous men always claim the moral high road.

      Through all your faults and all my complaints, I still love you.
