Caught in the act: After appearing in the explicit film, John Dancler was fired Stripped of his role: The pornographic film circulated on the internet before authorities discovered Mr Dancler's role in the movie

July 21, 2011   1:35 pm

The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has fired a 23-year veteran employee who appeared in uniform three years ago in a pornographic video.

Traffic officer John K. Dancler was discharged Monday. He challenged his firing on the same day, filing an appeal with the city’s five-member Civil Service Commission, said Maggie Whelan, general manager for the city’s Personnel Department.

Dancler was hired in 1988 and earned nearly $56,000 annually. Whelan would not give a reason for the termination.

[Updated at 2 p.m. July 21: Bruce Whidden, executive director of the Civil Service Commission, said Dancler was dismissed for engaging in “misconduct on the job and in uniform” and “indecent acts” that reflected unfavorably on the city workforce. Those acts included “groping the bare breasts, spanking the bare buttocks and being straddled by an adult video actress in public” around March 2008, he said.

The investigation was conducted nearly three months ago, after a report on the porn video was aired by KNBC-TV (Channel 4). Dancler’s lawyer could not be reached for comment.]

Another traffic officer who appeared in the video, Vaughn Dorsey, still works for the department, Whelan said.

The firing comes at a time when personnel woes are roiling two other city agencies.

Four workers have been placed on leave in the animal services department as a result of an investigation into the disappearance of animals from a shelter in Lincoln Heights and possible time card fraud. City Controller Wendy Greuel said Wednesday that she would conduct a wide-ranging audit of that agency, which is trying to determine whether shelter workers stole dogs and sold them for a profit. More than 10 workers at that agency are under scrutiny.Meanwhile, four employees have been fired over the past four months at the Department of Building and Safety. Three admitted to accepting bribes in exchange for providing permits and other approvals. A fourth, Frank Rojas, has filed a challenge of his firing to the Civil Service Commission.The FBI conducted an undercover sting operation at Building and Safety this year, using video and audio to record inspectors taking bribes. In April, a federal grand jury sent department officials a subpoena demanding personnel records on roughly a dozen Building and Safety employees.from:  http://latimesblogs.latimes.com/lanow/2011/07/la-officials-fire-traffic-officer-who-appeared-in-adult-film.html

The world’s most famous living archaeologist, Zahi Hawass, has been fired as Egypt’s antiquities minister.

Hawass, 64, was removed on the weekend as part of a cabinet shuffle that saw 11 other ministers lose their jobs in response to rising protests calling for a thorough purge of officials formerly associated with President Hosni Mubarak.

Hawass, long a staple on Discovery Television, was named secretary-general of the Supreme Council of Antiquities in 2002. The S.C.A. oversees Egypt’s ancient artifacts and sites and controls access to them in addition to approving touring exhibitions like King Tut: The Golden King and the Great Pharaohs hosted by the Art Gallery of Ontario in 2009-2010.

Hawass was given full ministerial standing by Mubarak shortly before the president’s ouster in February this year. He resigned on Mar. 3, only to be reinstated by the end of the month.

Hawass’s interim replacement is fellow Egyptologist/university professor Abdel-Fattah el-Banna.

Update at 11:19 a.m. ET

NPR chief Vivian Schiller has resigned amid a scandal over a secretly taped video.

NPR Board Chairman Dave Edwards confirms that President and CEO Vivian Schiller was forced out of her post. He told NPR reporters on a conference call that “the CEO of any organization is accountable for all of the operations of that organization.” He said that even though Schiller wasn’t personally responsible for such things as the secretly taped video that captured an NPR fundraiser disparaging the Tea Party and conservatives the board “determined that it was the wise move for us to accept her resignation and move on.”

The quotes come from The Two-Way, NPR’s news blog.

Update at 10:45 a.m. ET

NPR has posted audio of an interview with its own media correspondent, David Folkenflik, who says sources told him that Vivian Schiller was ousted from her post. He describes the secretly recorded video by conservative activist James O’Keefe, in which an NPR fundraiser disparages the Tea Party and Republicans, as the “last straw” in Schiller’s tenure as president and CEO. USA TODAY has not independently verified Folkenflik’s report.

Update at 10:18 a.m. ET

The departure of NPR President and CEO Vivian Schiller comes after several months of tumult at the public broadcasting network. Joyce Slocum, senior vice president of legal affairs and general counsel, will be the interim CEO.

Juan Williams, a former NPR analyst who was fired in October, slammed his former employer last night over the so-called “sting” video that led to Schiller’s departure.

“They will say things to your face about how there’s no liberal orthodoxy at NPR, how they play it straight, but now you see it for what it is. They prostitute themselves for money,” Williams said last night on Fox News, his new employer.

Update at 9:28 a.m. ET

NPR has announced that president and CEO Vivian Schiller has resigned.

Schiller is not related to former fundraising chief Ron Schiller, who was caught on a secretly taped video blasting Tea Party supporters as “racist” and saying the public broadcasting outlet doesn’t need federal funding.

Dave Edwards, chairman of NPR’s board of directors, said the board accepted Vivian Schiller’s resignation with “understanding, genuine regret, and great respect for her leadership of NPR these past two years.”

NPR’s The Two-Way blog has details.

Tuesday, January 4, 2011; 8:44 PM

The raunchy, ribald antics that cost Capt. Owen P. Honors his command have a long history in the U.S. Navy, where leaders have routinely tolerated such behavior in the name of maintaining morale at sea.

But the Navy fired Honors on Tuesday, two days after a series of videos he made in 2006 and 2007 surfaced on the Internet, removing him from the helm of the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise just weeks before it was to head to the war in Afghanistan. Honors made the videos when he was the ship’s executive officer, or second in command.

“While Capt. Honors’s performance as commanding officer of the USS Enterprise has been without incident, his profound lack of good judgment and professionalism while previously serving as executive officer on Enterprise calls into question his character and completely undermines his credibility to serve effectively in command,” said Adm. John C. Harvey Jr., commander of U.S. Fleet Forces Command.

Harvey will lead a broader investigation into whether other senior Navy officials knew about the four-year-old videos, which aired on the ship’s closed-circuit television, and why they failed to take disciplinary action against Honors. The probe is likely to focus on whether Rear Adm. Lawrence Rice, who was captain of the ship in 2007, and his immediate commander, now-retired Rear Adm. Raymond A. Spicer, had seen the videos or received complaints about them.

In the frequently profane videos, Honors is seen pantomiming masturbation and peering into the shower stalls at pairs of male and female sailors who are depicted showering together as part of a send-up of the ship’s water conservation efforts. Although Honors uses an anti-gay slur on several occasions, the videos don’t appear to have been intended to demean gays and are mostly juvenile in nature.

“The line is pretty clear: If sexual innuendo is involved it is out of bounds,” said retired Vice Adm. John Morgan, who commanded the USS Enterprise Carrier Strike Group in 2001 and 2002. “What bothers me is that Capt. Honors’s behavior set a standard that allowed for sexual innuendo.”

Many fellow sailors on the Enterprise leapt to the defense of Honors in the wake of his dismissal, describing him as a funny, caring and conscientious officer. A Facebook page that was created in his honor showed 2,700 supporters by day’s end.

“I have nothing to gain or lose by saying that Capt. Honors did wonders for the morale of our ship,” said one sailor who served on the Enterprise when the videos were made and declined to be quoted by name because he remains on active duty. “I’ve been in for 13 years and never had an officer that I felt was more approachable.”

Other former Navy officers acknowledged that ribald humor, similar in nature to the sexual innuendo in Honors’s videos, is a storied part of Navy tradition. For decades ships have held elaborate “Shellback” ceremonies for sailors making their first trip across the equator. These rituals typically have involved young sailors in drag and licking grape jelly from the belly button of a fat sailor who is dressed in an oversized diaper.

The Navy has made periodic efforts to clamp down on the Shellback initiations, urging commanders to dispense with belly-licking and “beauty contests” in which male sailors dress up as women. Navy commanders also have begun to play a more prominent role in monitoring the shipboard ceremonies to ensure that sailors aren’t offended.

“The videos were badly out of step with the current mood of the Navy,” said retired Capt. Kevin Eyer, who last commanded a cruiser in 2009. “It is inexplicable to me that [Honors] didn’t understand that he was in deep water.”

Indeed, many Navy officers said the video escapades strayed far beyond what is considered acceptable in the Navy today. “I pray to God that the videos are unusual,” said retired Rear Adm. Stephen Pietropaoli, former head of Navy public affairs. “It is not unusual for us to have edgy or ribald humor. The key is knowing where that line is.”

In firing Honors, senior Navy officials concluded that the videos had made it impossible for him to lead or discipline his subordinates. Many current and former Navy officers were particularly offended by the dismissive tone he seemed to take toward sailors who had relayed concerns about his previous videos.

“Over the years, I’ve gotten several complaints about inappropriate material during these videos – never to me personally, but gutlessly through other channels,” Honors said in one of the videos. “This evening, all of you bleeding hearts – and you, fag SWO boy – why don’t you just go ahead and hug yourselves for the next 20 minutes or so, because there is a really good chance you’re going to be offended tonight.” SWO is the Navy acronym for Surface Warfare Officer, the large branch of the Navy dedicated to overseeing the service’s fleet of ships.

The Navy moved swiftly to replace Honors with Capt. Dee Mewbourne, who previously commanded the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower carrier and has a reputation as a hard-working and cerebral officer. Mewbourne has spent most of the past eight years at sea and will leave with the Enterprise for a seven-month deployment in a few weeks.

“He has been a superstar since we were all mids at the Naval Academy,” said Ward Carroll, editor of the Military.com Web site and a former Navy aviator. By contrast, Honors was always “one of the boys,” Carroll said.

—————————————————————————————- 

The Navy fired the commander of the USS Enterprise on Tuesday more than three years after he made sexually explicit videos to boost morale for crewmembers, some of whom say he did nothing wrong.

Capt. Owen Honors was involved in the making of the videos while serving as the No. 2 officer aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier. 

The videos, shown in 2006 and 2007 to thousands of sailors to teach shipboard safety, used coarse language and supposed humorous sexual references to gays and women. They were made public recently after being obtained by Norfolk’s Virginian-Pilot newspaper. The newspaper did not explain how it got the videos and said it was unclear why the videos are resurfacing now.

“After personally reviewing the videos created while serving as executive officer, I have lost confidence in Capt. Honors’ ability to lead effectively,” said Adm. John Harvey, head of U.S. Fleet Forces Command in Norfolk.

Harvey declined to answer questions from reporters and said the Navy will investigate how the videos were produced and whether other senior officers knew of them. Honors was promoted twice subsequent to the showing of the videos.

Thousands of sailors and former sailors have flooded media outlets saying they did not find the videos offensive. A Facebook page created to support Honors now has thousands of members. Letters to the Navy Times overwhelmingly express support for Honors, who was placed on administrative duties.

“I’m personally sickened by what’s going on with these videos!” wrote Brandon Goode, who is stationed at Pearl Harbor. He said he served aboard Enterprise during the carrier’s 2006 and 2007 deployments.

“Every Friday EVERY sailor and I couldn’t wait to finally get a break, sit down and watch … MOVIE NIGHT,” Goode wrote. “Captain Honors would speak for a little bit and let us know what’s going on, then he would put on his skits and they WERE HILARIOUS and I can remember everyone laughing, no one was offended. It boosted our morale and made us look forward to ending another week at sea.

“He’s a great man, and one of the rare officers who spoke to everyone as if they were just another man or woman. HOO YA to Captain Honors!”

The videos, which include scenes of simulated same-sex showers and masturbation — as well as one of Honors’ “alternate personalities” (he plays three roles in the same scene via a video trick) using an anti-gay slur — have led some to call the videos lewd and sexist. Others raise questions about Honors’ leadership style.

“The issue here is not about political correctness,” wrote Navy Times reader John DeCarolis. “The issue here is that a senior leader is expected to be a role model for those under his/her leadership — and this person failed.

“I’ve been stationed on three ships, and I understand ‘the morale thing,’ ” DeCarolis wrote. “But a (commander) should not engage in … this behavior.”

Retired Navy commander Kirk Lippold, who commanded the USS Cole when it was attacked by al-Qaeda in Yemen in 2000, agreed.

“There are a number of ways to maintain morale without having to denigrate people or lifestyles or belittle people,” he said.

Portions of the videos “are relatively reflective of the rough and tumble way in which people relate to one another aboard a ship,” said Mike Navarre, who served active duty as a Navy lawyer from 1999 to 2004.

“The humor might be a little different than we might use in the halls of a law firm or an office,” he said. “There are also certain lines that cannot be crossed, disparaging words and slurs cross that line. As executive officer, he had to uphold a higher standard.”

Harvey also had to consider whether Honors could continue to command respect from his crew, said Navarre, now a lawyer at Steptoe & Johnson.

“His ability to lead is separate from and more important than whether he violated any rule or regulation,” he said. “He may have committed no crime, but his superiors may still have no confidence in his ability to lead.”

A former Navy ship commander who said he supports the spirit of what he feels Honors was trying to accomplish with the videos, and that he found much of it humorous, agreed that Honors probably took things too far.

“There was good intent there,” said Bryan McGrath, who commanded the USS Bulkeley from 2004 to 2006. “I think he was trying to motivate a crew that was facing a huge task. I think he just went over the line.”

At the same time, McGrath said he doesn’t think the video productions were a firing offense. “It certainly should bring some reprimand,” McGrath said.

ESPN fired veteran play-by-play announcer Ron Franklin on Tuesday, four days after Franklin referred to a female colleague as “sweet baby” and followed that up with an expletive after she objected.

Franklin, who has called games for the sports cable network since 1987, was due to broadcast the Fiesta Bowl game on ESPN’s radio network Saturday, but he was yanked off the air by as a result of the run-in on Friday with sideline reporter Jeannine Edwards during an off-air encounter.

Franklin, 68, apologized on Monday for his remarks to Edwards, but to no apparent avail.

The incident is the latest in a long string of episodes in which ESPN hosts have demeaned or engaged in sexually harassing behavior toward the Disney-owned network’s female employees.

Baseball analyst Harold Reynolds was fired in 2006 after being accused of harassment by a female employee. Steve Phillips, another baseball analyst, lost his job in 2009 as a result of an affair with a much younger production assistant who disclosed the relationship to Phillips’s wife after he sought to break it off. In 2007, a makeup artist working on the since-canceled show “Cold Pizza” sued the program’s co-hosts, alleging they groped and harassed her. (The suit was thrown out.)

Last year, former Washington Post sports columnist Tony Kornheiser, co-star of the popular ESPN show “Pardon the Interruption,” was suspended for critical comments he made on his local radio program about “SportsCenter” host Hannah Storm’s clothes.

Franklin reportedly addressed another sideline reporter, Holly Rowe, as “sweetheart” during a 2005 broadcast. He later apologized to Rowe.

That incident prompted ESPN ombudsman George Solomon to observe at the time: “Play-by-play commentators need to take sideline reporters – many of whom are women – more seriously. So does ESPN, which needs to give these reporters more airtime and more serious issues to address.”

In a statement Monday about Franklin, ESPN said, “We’re not going to get into specifics other than to say adhering to our personal-conduct policies and showing respect for colleagues are of the utmost importance to our company and we take them extremely seriously.”

The network also issued a statement from Franklin, saying: “I said some things I shouldn’t have and am sorry. I deserved to be taken off the Fiesta Bowl.”

ESPN dealt with dozens of sexual harassment incidents in the first two decades after its founding in 1979, according to “ESPN: The Uncensored History,” a book by New York Times sportswriter Mike Freeman that was published in 2000. Among those disciplined, according to the book, was “Monday Night Football” announcer Mike Tirico, who in 1992 was suspended for unwelcome advances toward another employee.

Despite its track record, ESPN is no more hospitable to harassing behavior than other male-dominated workplaces, said Dan Lebowitz, executive director of the Sport in Society program at Northeastern University.

“I hate to single out ESPN for having a dysfunctional culture,” Lebowitz said. “It just mimics an inherent ill in our society. It’s more a reflection of overall societal behavior where women are mistreated in the workplace. Whether it’s the investment industry or the entertainment industry or something else, it’s across the board. It just seems more sensational at ESPN because they’re a very public entity.”

Added Lebowitz, “There’s still an awful long way to go in terms of teachable moments for men to understand proper workplace conduct and to treat women as equals.”

At the very least, he said, ESPN “has sent a message” that such conduct won’t be tolerated, by firing or suspending employees whose behavior crossed the line.

The Franklin-Edwards exchange came before the Florida State-South Carolina game. Franklin was talking with two fellow announcers, Rod Gilmore and Ed Cunningham, about Gilmore’s wife, Marie, who was elected mayor of Alameda, Calif., in November.

When Edwards tried to join the conversation, Franklin allegedly responded, “Why don’t you leave this to the boys, sweet cakes?” according to the Web site Sportsbybrooks.com, which first reported the incident. (Edwards later told USA Today that Franklin used the term “sweet baby.”)

When Edwards objected to Franklin’s comment, Franklin allegedly responded, “Okay then, [expletive].”

After senior executives learned of the comments, ESPN tried to pull Franklin off the game but couldn’t find a replacement for him in time. He and Edwards worked together that night without apparent incident. He was replaced the next night on the radio broadcast of a second college game.

—————————————————————————————-

Parting won’t be sweet sorrow for the ESPN announcer who was dropped today after insulting a female colleague.

ESPN spokesman Josh Krulewitz told USA TODAY’s Game On! blog today that Ron Franklin is out after a 25-year career because of his actions toward fellow announcer Jeannine Edwards last week during bowl game preparations.

“Based on what occurred last Friday, we have ended our relationship with him,” Krulewitz said.

Franklin issued an apology to Edwards through an ESPN spokesman for calling her “sweet baby” and then, when she objected, amending it to “a–hole.”

“I said some things I shouldn’t have and am sorry,” Franklin said in a statement. “I deserved to be taken off the Fiesta Bowl.”

Franklin joined ESPN in 1987.
