The police department sex scandal that landed Lakeland, Fla., in national headlines has now claimed the jobs of four veteran officers implicated in the case, with two getting fired and two resigning this week.

Lakeland Police Department Sgts. Rusty Longaberger and David Woolverton were sacked Monday, and Lt. Albert Wilson and Officer George Vidal quit Tuesday. All the men were named in a state report revealing that up to 10 officers had sexual contact with a female crime analyst—some of which may not have been consensual—over the past seven years.

Civilian female employees having sex with PO's? Get the heck outta here! LOL.

The information in the article makes my head hurt, so shes been having sexual contact with up 10 officers at various times over the period of 7 years and she is now saying that not only was it unwanted but some of it might have been against her will? I am sure there is more to the story but the way it is posted here really does not make sense at the moment.

It takes two to tango, how about the consensual sex on the tax payers dollar. This whore should also be fired.

Who is surprised by this? The badge will get you whiskey and women and whiskey and women will get that badge. God Bless the old Sergeant that told me that in 1982. Some things never change.

Sounds as if she did not get what she wanted; she turned on all of them. That makes her a "SLUT".

I guess she's tired of working and playing. It's time to cash in and get rich. However, it's sad she used and caused so many to lose their job. She reminds me of my ex-wife.....SAD!!!
