Egads, he's at it again

WSBTV.com - News - Ousted Habitat Leader Says Carter to Intercede in Dispute

Former President Jimmy "Buttinski" Carter has once again decided to step in where his help is not needed. Now hold on, I know some of you are about to say "Now, Nancy, Carter is a good man who has done this country a lot of good." And I'd agree with you, although being President was perhaps not part of the original comment. Like others who lay claim to that title, his works outside office are far more impressive than what happened as a result of his being in office. Have a feeling we made a wise decision not to hand him a second term. But I digress..
As reported a few posts back, the founder of Habitat for Humanity hindered an investigation into whether or not he acted in an inppropriate manner towards a female associated with the group. Think it might have been a staffer, but could have been a volunteer. This led to Fuller's ousting by the board. Good call, if he didn't do anything wrong, why not let an investigation prove it?
Mediation is not the answer here. It is to look into what may or may not have happened, and see what comes up. Fuller should be banned from the premises, IMHO, until such time as further action can be determined.

Thanks, Nancy. Why work hard to provide homes for people who need them but carry on the 'same ole, same ole' sexual harrassment...

But we are all human...
