I still can’t believe this is a real story, but yeah, it is…
You’ve probably already seen it linked from Drudge or just from the Des Moines Register, but check it out! Iowa Central president receives $400K for resignation.
It’s the details, man. I can’t believe the details!
The special meeting was called after The Des Moines Register published a July 4 photograph of Paxton aboard a boat with a group of young people, holding the spigot of a small beer keg suspended over a young woman’s open mouth.
A picture got out, so when they asked him about it, of course he fessed up, right? Wrong!!!
When questioned by the Register, Paxton initially denied knowing anything about the photo or any recent boat outings with young people. After being told that Crimmins had already informed the Register that he had seen the photo and the two men had discussed it, Paxton acknowledged the photo’s authenticity. He said he had done nothing illegal or improper.
Can you imagine when they said there was a picture… “Ohhhhhhh, THAT recent boat outing!” What a tool.
It seems to get better.
Paxton, 52, has said all of the people who were drinking in the boat when the photograph was taken were of legal age. He said the beer keg was broken and wasn’t dispensing beer into the young woman’s mouth. He said his 19-year-old son, who was arrested for second-offense drunken driving early the next morning, was in the boat but was not drinking.
Who cares I guess… the dude is getting $400,000 for being a douche. Awesome.
