The Genius Milwaukee City Employee Who Used Her Work Email to Denounce a Facebook Friend’s Gay Marriage

People who send hate mail confuse me, because they seem to have a lot of extra time on their hands, and don’t they know there’s a new episode of Top Chef on? But people who send hate mail from personally identifiable accounts confuse me even more, because don’t they know what an anonymous Gmail account is for? And then there are people who send hate mail from their work email accounts, and they’re just sucking fupid.

A Port of Milwaukee assistant, whose identity hasn’t been released, fired off an email to a Facebook acquaintance after learning he got gay married. She was not happy with him! So not only do we have a city employee using work resources to send mean messages, we have a city employee wasting time on Facebook while on the clock. No guarantee she’ll be fired, because wasn’t she really just expressing her personal beliefs?

      When she sends e-mail from a city account she is representing the city. Therefore she must be fired unless it is city policy that gays who are married are living in sin.

      The reporter kept referring to him as a “homosexual” man. I refer to her as “homophobic” woman. Now we’re even.

      The woman that used the lame catch phrase “…Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve” should be fired for simply being a moron.

      @David in Houston: Not to mention the fact that according to their Bible, God did INDEED create Adam and Steve.

      I don’t know that she should be fired, but she should certainly be reprimanded by her superiors. Using work email to write disparaging personal notes can’t possibly be workplace policy.

      @David in Houston: or at least for her lack of creativity… Adam and Steve… c’mon. Cliche’ much!

      To quote the great Dabney Coleman as Franklin Hart, Jr., in NINE TO FIVE, “You heard me. Fire the bitch!”

      Seriously, we are entitled to our opinions, we’re not entitled to air them indiscriminately or as representing the companies we work for.
