Fix this mayor.
Voters Recall Oregon Mayor Who Posed on Fire Truck in Underwear ARLINGTON, Ore. — The mayor of an Oregon town who once stripped to her underwear and posed on a fire truck has been stripped of her office. Voters in Arlington, population about 500, voted narrowly on Monday night to recall Carmen Kontur-Gronquist. The tally was 142-139. City officials said the recall is effective Tuesday. Kontur-Gronquist said the pictures of her in black bra and panties were taken for use in a contest about fitness, but a relative posted them on MySpace in hopes it would improve the social life of the single mother. They predated her election, but she said she saw no reason to take them off the popular Web site once elected three years ago. Later, she closed access to them. Opponents said it wasn't fitting for the mayor to be so depicted. They said they also disagreed with her on issues about water and the local golf course.

Bank intern busted by Facebook Kevin Colvin, an intern at Anglo Irish Bank's North American arm, was busted when he told his manager, Paul Davis, that he'd miss work due to what colleagues took to be a "family emergency". Davis turned up in a photo freshly posted to Facebook from the Halloween party Colvin apparently missed work to attend, and attached it to his reply, copying the rest of the office as he did it. The email thread is now spreading around the net. (Valleywag)
