Turns out there is life after the Kansas City Star...
Even for folks who leave under a cloud. Take the case of former sports editor Holly Lawton aka Sportsbabe 68 on Twitter. Lawton’s sudden and unexplained resignation from the newspaper last summer went down amidst a growing controversy that culminated with sports scribe Jason Whitlock leaving the paper.
But not before Whitlock made it perfectly clear in a radio and television interview that he and other Star staffers were convinced Lawton and bad boy Star editor Mike Fannin were involved in an "inappropriate relationship."
Lawton’s abrupt bailing from a high dollar position at the Star to go job hunting in the worst recession in decades added to the mystery.
Turns out Sportsbabe68 is staying in sports.
Kinda. She’s landed a job at ad agency VML, her Facebook page says.
"Peace." Oh, and her Facebook profile pic is of an unidentified pussy.
One last detail…
Of Lawton’s 207 Facebook "friends" – 50 of which are past or present Star staffers – two are conspicuous by their absence; her former bosses Mike Fannin and Mark Zieman.
