Town Fires City Manager Because of Marriage To Adult Film Actress

MSNBC.com reports that the Fort Myers Beach town council has fired Scott Janke as town manager, giving as its reason Mr. Janke's recent marriage to adult film actress Anabela Mota, who uses the name Jazella Moore for screen work. The council apparently is worried that Mr. Janke's marriage to Ms. Mota would be "distracting." Fort Myers Beach mayor Larry Kiker acknowledged that Mr. Janke had done a good job in his position, but member of the council Tom Babcock told residents that Mr. Janke's marriage gave a bad impression of the town. "When you become a public figure you are held to a different level of scrutiny and ethics," Mr. Babcock is quoted as saying.
