But They Weren’t Fired. The Whistleblower Was.
(SOURCE) An assistant librarian says she was fired after reporting two town employees having sex in the library late last month — and now she plans to file a lawsuit against the New Mexico town.
Jamie Kurz walked in the Estancia Public Library before opening one morning and heard noises emitting from the children’s section of the library, her attorney, Joseph CampBell, told KOB-TV. When she walked over to investigate, Kurz saw two town employees having sexual intercourse, the attorney said.
“Right in the middle of the library, in front of God and everybody,” attorney CampBell told the local news station.
After catching the two in the act, Kurz allegedly contacted the town clerk, Julie Carter, and Mayor Sylvia Chavez. She later wrote the mayor asking for time off to avoid a “hostile work situation,” her attorney said.
Days after Chavez approved her time off, Kurz and Carter both learned they would be terminated, according to CampBell.
“They’re two outsiders, non-locals,” he said. “You know, they stumbled upon and kicked up a hornets nest.”
Mayor Chavez was reportedly unavailable to comment on the matter, according to KOB-TV.
