Am I the only one that thinks off duty conduct for something that does not violate any law should be a non issue at work? Is what he did gross? Absolutely. Is it something he should be punished for at work? Not in my opinion.

What is the video was someone secretly capturing him kissing another guy outside a nightclub? Lots of people would consider that gross too. should they punish him at work for it? Is the answer different than for the question above? Not for me it isn't.

It is no employers business what you do in your spare time as long as it is legal activity. I don't care that he is paid with public money. It is irrelevant. If we held public servants to the standards of every tax payer we would end up with no public servants. There would be no women, minorities, homosexuals, left handed people, atheists, Jews, Christians, disabled persons or men. For every identified group of people out there, there is someone out there that pays taxes that has a hate on for that group and finds their values or activities unacceptable.

I am not sure when freedom and liberty died but it has been dead for a while now.

SoCalChris: The real question is if him and his buddies were carrying while this was going on.


So what if him were? Whom would report he? Me wouldn't.

Sorry, pet peeve.

I agree with you in principle... But the terms of employment he agreed to upon being hired had "If you royally embarrass the department in the media, to HR's discretion, we will can your ass," he's out of luck. I almost guarantee you there was such a clause.

Now you're just being melodramatic.
