Oregon Lawyer Gets Reprimand For classmates.com Post
If you ever want to take yourself out of the running for an elected office and throw your career down the toilet, just post a false posting on classmates.com:
A district attorney candidate claims to have been just joking when he impersonated a high school teacher on the Classmates.com Web site and "confessed" to having sex with his female students.
Needless to say, the Oregon Supreme Court wasn't too pleased with the John Day lawyer, and slapped him with a public reprimand, and basically forced him to drop out of his DA race (which I read in yesterday's Oregonian, and I'm not about to try to find the story on their site).
In February 2001, Jim Carpenter created a Classmates.com account in the name of a man with whom he went to high school years earlier and posted this message: "Hey all! How is it going. I am married to an incredibly beautiful woman, AND I get to hang out with high school chicks all day (and some evenings too). I have even been lucky with a few. It just doesn't get better than this."
