Predictably, the Hurd Situation is Starting to Get Weird(er)

The lady in questions says there was never any sex. Yes, this is a picture of her, Jodie Fisher.

She is also sad. Sad that Mark lost his job.

Hurd leaves with 40 million - rumors are running all over the 'net - this could be either the biggest fall for that smallest oversight($20,000.) or there is much, much more to all this.

Hurd spent money on dinners/"interviews", one site actually uses the words "canoodle" and woo.

Lobster was served.

It's not Tiger Woods, and it ain't Goldman Sachs, but it is not good at all.

Never, again, should anyone ever question why I use gorgeous women on my blog.

Words of Hurd:

“As the investigation progressed, I realized there were instances in which I did not live up to the standards and principles of trust, respect and integrity that I have espoused at HP and which have guided me throughout my career,”

“This is a painful decision for me to make after five years at HP, but I believe it would be difficult for me to continue as an effective leader at HP and I believe this is the only decision the board and I could make at this time.”

H-P said Friday that Mr. Hurd, 53 years old, didn't violate the company's policy regarding sexual-harassment but submitted inaccurate expense reports that were intended to conceal what the company said was a "close personal relationship" with the contractor.

The woman was an outside marketing contractor for H-P between the fall of 2007 and the fall of 2009, H-P has said. Gloria Allred, an attorney for the contractor, has denied the woman had a sexual relationship with Mr. Hurd.

Friday, Ms. Lesjak, H-P's chief financial officer, urged employees to remain "focused" and said "Mark had failed to disclose a close personal relationship he had with the contractor that constituted a conflict of interest, failed to maintain accurate expense reports, and misused company assets."

Wow.
