It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see who was involved here. This should have been handled privately like any other HR issue unless they were willing to expose her, too. When will they learn? It’s all fun and games until they get caught, and then it becomes something else.

I’m not bothered by this story. Not because it is or isn’t true, but it’s funny how Brett Farve isn’t being dragged through the social media world. Somehow this is a bigger scandal than stealing from the less fortunate with help from a governor.
