RbW Update: Girlfriend fired

January 16, 2006 at 8:37 am (Raised by Wolves)

In an update to this week's Raised by Wolves, Julie Carpenter, The Impaler's love mate, pagan bride and favorite snack, has been fired from her job, within hours of Jonathan "The Impaler" Sharkey's announcement that he is running for Governor of Minnesota.

The partner of the new gubernatorial candidate, Jonathon "The Impaler" Sharkey, says she's been unjustly fired from her job.

News traveled fast Friday when Sharkey announced he was a vampyre and he wants to be Minnesota's next governor. Just hours after the Friday news conference, Sharkey's girlfriend learned she was losing her job as a school bus driver.

On Saturday she tearfully read from the letter the Princeton School District gave her employer, Peterson Bus. The letter says, "It is our opinion that Ms. Carpenter does not serve as a role model, nor is suitable to provide transportation services for the Princeton School District, in light of recent media reports of her husband/friend to be a vampyre who is running for public office, and Ms. Carpenter informing other bus garage employees that she is a witch."

As far out in left field as I think these two are (and that's a fucking far-flung mile), I think the bus company has probably just financed the campaign singlehandedly. Playing Vampy Scooby Snack in her off-the-bus hours, while decidedly odd, isn't illegal. It's certainly not illegal to be handfasted to someone running for pubic orifice. So long as she isn't sacrificing children instead of transporting them to and from school, there really was no cause to fire her under the law.

Yes, I'm getting to the point, folks, shush.

Since there's no mention of misconduct, poor work attendance, or other acceptable reasons to shitcan the lady, it sure looks from here like there's a nice juicy discrimination suit just waiting for the right bus-chaser to come along. It's nearly 2 pm Central time, and by now I'm sure there's a legal secretary in front of a computer, pouring legalese into a document so that it's ready to file as soon as the courthouse opens tomorrow, thereby starting the process of making sure Mr. Sharkey and his ladylove have no problem financing this whole fiasco.

My congratulations to the Peterson Bus Company and to the school district of Princeton, Minnesota. I'm sure the whole town is damned proud of your discriminatory stand-up stupidity behavior.
