Abuse of Power

July 12, 2013

More and more it seems people in positions of leadership find themselves tempted to push the envelop so far that they get in trouble and at best just lose their jobs, but in many cases wind up being arrested. With the plethora of electronic devices you would think they might get the word you cannot get by with anything today. The coach who cheats on his/her spouse with a cheerleader, assistant, or office worker keeps cropping up. The latest victim is the NKU athletic director. He not only dated several office workers, but had to steal funds to pay his expenses needed to cheat with these fellow workers. Then there were the two school officials who thought it was okay to go on elaborate trips by using the tax payer dollars to foot the bill. How many high school teachers have lost their jobs because they dated their underage students? No matter how discreet you think you are, someone will either talk or record what you are doing. I guess the temptation overrides the common sense. Some of this goes both ways because the so-called victim sometimes is not as innocent as we would like to think they are. However, this is never an excuse if one of the parties is an adult and the other is a minor.
