Oh, so she's at fault now for outing Barney Fife? The Rev. Godbee did it to himself by calling back here and having his crew run out to Farmington Hills. Remember, don't cut your women off cold or you may get cut.

Perhaps you misconstrued my opinion.....they, to me, are both wrong...he is still legally married as is she. No morals? No respect for marriage vows? No caring for your spouse?

There are 3 sides to this situation: his, hers and the right one.

However, if she does sue the City of Detroit (mentioned in the newspapers)...well, sounds like a woman scorned to me - the City is his employer.....they didn't 'scorn' her. I just have a hard time envisioning her stand.(I do believe she needs help...she, being a City employee herself - she's biting the hand that feeds her. OR..perhaps she is hoping to get a settlement that will allow her to find another beau. Strange people do strange things.)

It's too early to tell who will really sue and how might just be using threats as leverage. The first case of legal wrongdoing cropped up yesterday when Ms. Patterson produced text messages suggesting Godbee promised her a promotion for sex. If that evidence holds up and can be transferred to the "Jelly" situation, then there are good grounds for a lawsuit. Monique said she doesn't plan to sue as she already achieved her promotion out of it.

Mom's Mabley would say Godbee is "nothin but a no good passionate bum."

It's the latter. Didn't you know, it's all about blaming someone else. The city, as you pointed out, isn't at fault, but this idiot wants to sue them for her stupidity. She cheats on her own husband and involves herself with another married cheater yet somehow, it's the city's fault. A woman scorned is simply a bigger idiot.

There is growing evidence that Ralph Godbee traded job favors for sexual favors. That is simply not legal. The scorned woman is not an idiot when protesting often results in a promotion or money damages. It may not be pretty and you may not like it, but those are the facts.

Once again, where is it the fault of the city? Did the mayor dictate Gobgee's behavior? How about city council? Also, the woman HAD A CHOICE not to trade favors. She could have simply said "NO" then reported Godbee for offering sexual favors for job advancement.

I stand what I stated. She's an idiots because she followed through with her sexual escapade when all she had to do was say "NO" and now wants to blame someone else. It didn't work out therefore, let's sue the city. Yes, she's a scorned idiot and many others are idiots for failing to view that logic.

A municipality is responsible for allowing criminal acts of employees, in this case Ralph's sex-for-jobs plan. Whether a case has merit depends on the jury. You can call Lotto winners idiots too, but winners are winners. Ask Charlie Sheen.

The admiration for Charlie Sheen clearly displays your disposition. BTW, Charlie Sheen admitted his errors and stupidity. He was an idiot for his childish tirade and frankly, IMO, is still an idiot.

Comparing this case to a lotto winner is apples to oranges and displays your lack of logic.

The reference to Sheen was merely a joke.
Sheesh!

This whole thing should blow over quickly now. Chester Logan is an old school type of guy who will stick to the basics with no extra-curriculars.

Bing tried to put the best face on things. I really doubt Godbee came to him and offered to retire. It probably was an ultimatum to retire or get fired.

Now Bing will pick from a list and council will need to approve. The new selection policy should avoid the cronyism and hiring of those with known background problems as Godbee had and Bing was aware of. Bing said of Godbee, "I talked to him about THIS and I thought he had changed as he agreed." What the "THIS" referred to is not clear. It may have been Godbee's socialization or his use of department resources for non departmental use.
