Oh please. I love women. I respect women but I hate women (and men) like Waltson. People without integrity or scruples but a whole lot of moxie. She obviously has no shame.
This isnt a single instance of insubordination. Its a clear cut case of a woman trying to sleep her way into a job and taking full advantage of a man's weakness. He was played. And it cost him far more than one can measure in a lawsuit.
Those of you who race to her defense are showing your prejudice and your ignorance. While I'd certainly give her the benefit of doubt if this was a result of a few sexual incidents, I cannot give her any credit when she was a willing party if not the instigator of the entire fiasco. A fiasco that went on for a long time with two willing parties! Both of whom are idiots of the highest order.
To sue and to ruin both of their careers is the mark of stupidity, desperation and denial.
Women like her who cry wolf, are the reason that so many people (men and women) distrust these accusations. She didnt get what she set out to get (a promotion) and so she cries foul... And now she rightly faces the public blow back from years of bad judgement and poor execution. Racing to her defense is not supporting justice, its pure prejudice.

Eckermann, Marriage is between two adults, its construct and boundaries are between those two people, and them alone. Your morality and religious beliefs are not everyone's, nor are they the rule of law. So your morality argument is irrelevant.
This is the lawsuit of a woman scorned and upset she didnt get what she wanted. She may win some money but she'll never ever work in this town again. No one I know would ever hire someone with such poor judgement and worse, a sue happy trigger finger. What would have happened if she had gotten the job? Would one of her colleagues have ratted these two out? Seems like a likely scenario considering her wants and his position and past...
As far as I am concerned she is as culpable as he and therefore deserves nothing. In addition she was not qualified for the job she "dreamed" of any more than she is qualified to play the victim here... she is the very epitome of why many men do not want to hire women at all...
Stick that if your feminist pipe ladies...

formersbso is right. This is a sad and albeit stupid situation between two adults. Both are culpable. But suing makes her the instigator and a target.
She is no victim of anything other than her own misguided, potentially demented judgement. From what I read, she met with him dozens of times over months... They both knew exactly what they were doing.
This is the tale of scorn and spite.
For her to take this public and sue is ridiculously stupid and shortsighted. By taking this public and suing she's ruined her career and her reputation, his career and reputation and well beyond...
A tale of stupidity all around but one with all the right plot lines. Power, sex, politics, small town love affairs. Sure makes for great fodder.

Walston is either insanely stupid or really greedy. Either way, she'll never work in PR again... No one in their right mind would hire her.

While I think his molestation case is a travesty, he is a criminal. Illegal entry into the US and 25 years of illegal work makes him a criminal. And more importantly a cheater.
Unless we enforce the law, its meaningless. And this is my biggest problem with illegal immigration. These people cheated, they ignored the very foundation of our society for their own selfish desires. If they cannot respect our laws, why should we give them the most cherished citizenship on the planet? Especially when there are millions of people following the law and waiting in line.
Every single illegal needs to be treated as what they are... lying cheating criminals. No protection, no special treatment, nothing. Get in the back of the line and wait your turn.

Foo - A long a rough trip in on a tender?
Its a 3min ride into the harbor on one of those tenders, hardly long, hardly rough... our seas and especially the harbor entrance are not often rough.
for a guy with a lot of opinions about the water, you dont really know much about it.

As a boater, the dominance in the harbor and the closing of an entire lane of traffic on Cabrillo sucks.
Other than that, I could care less if they're here... I dont think they really add anything to the coffers or to the community. After all most of the stores on State St are in every other town in the US... so its not like they're buying local except for a few t-shirts and coffees and they eat on the boat...

These folks are great but why cant the harbor buy these items for them? The city makes tens millions off the harbor. The least they can do is outfit the ones who clean the bathrooms. How about Brophy's pay for the items? They clog the whole area with their tourist grub and cause such a huge traffic mess for those of us who actually use the harbor for water activities.
This kind of stuff sucks. While these folks are working to keep the place clean, city staff sits on their butts in the offices high above the harbor acting as if they dont stink. Finding every reason in the book to charge more for less... meanwhile the actual workers are out there doing actual work. pffff

This is a year or two too late. Figueroa beat them to the punch and took away all their potential. Sorry guys, you missed the boat on this one. You should have opened up a tap room somewhere where people actually hang out... not off the beaten path years ago. Now you're playing catch-up and the odds are that you missed the opp. Bummer since you do make some decent beer.
