'PLAYGIRL' EDITOR FIRED AFTER OUTING SELF AS REPUBLICAN

PLAYGIRL editor-in-chief Michele Zipp has been stripped of her duties after she revealed how she voted Republican in the 2004 election.

Zipp, in an e-mail, claims she was fired after an onslaught of liberal backlash.

"Hello Drudge,

"After your coverage of my article about coming out and voting Republican, I did receive many letters of support from fellow Republican voters, but it was not without repercussions. Criticism from the liberal left ensued. A few days after the onslaught of liberal backlash, I was released from my duties at Playgirl magazine.

"After underlings expressed their disinterest of working for an outed Republican editor, I have a strong suspicion that my position was no longer valued by Playgirl executives. I also received a phone call from a leading official from Playgirl magazine, in which he stated with a laugh, "I wouldn't have hired you if I knew you were a Republican.

"I just wanted to let you know of the fear the liberal left has about a woman with power possessing Republican views


Developing...

Let the spinning begin on this one.....

No this doesn't totally outrage me at all, but a little bit. I find it interesting that this would take place. I thought the dems were supposed to inclusive of others ideas and not hold the differences against anyone.

Playboy enterprises has long been a supporter of Dems and, if one were to ever read an article in one of their publications, anti-Republican.

No problem there. It's a free country and business can hire and fire who they like, similarly people can take or quit jobs as they choose.

But business' can't hire and fire at their whim! There have been lots of people that have been fired for age and there certainly have been people that haven't been hired because of the ethnicity, sex, religious preference, sexual preference and ect.......

So you are suggesting that society would benefit from yet another restriction on the ability of business owners to hire and fire people? "He fired me because I'm a Democrat!" would be added to the already lengthy list of restrictions?

Not at all, I am just trying to provoke discussion and the irony of the events in question.


I am saying that it shouldn't be a determining factor at all. One should be judged on performance, not any thing else....

I think somebody should fire your ass for being a socialist. Then again who would we have left to stuff cans full of fruit? No Republican would be doing that job unless maybe they were like 14 and trying to save up enough cash for a car when they turn 16.

I think you'd have to be pretty gullible to believe this woman got fired because she's a Republican.

Performance in what regard? Merely in editing pictures of naked men or also in perpetuating the corporate goals. She may have been the best naked man picture editor out there, but if she is working against the corporate good then it is reasonable that she be fired.

I am assuming that the "corporate good" for Playboy Enterprises (i.e. the perpetuation of the "Playboy Lifestyle") would be near the precise opposite of conservative Republican ideals.

In a slightly different context, such as my political consulting work, it would be even more of a problematic where I prohibited from terminating someone for their political affiliation.
