War on Women: Houston Chronicle Reporter Fired for Moonlighting as Stripper

Posted by on May 11, 2012 at 2:50 pm

Have these people lost their minds? Who wouldn’t want this  babe around the newsroom?

A part-time stripper fired from her full-time newspaper job covering Texas high society claims she’s a victim of gender discrimination.

Sarah Tressler, 30, filed a complaint this week asking the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate the Houston Chronicle’s decision to let her go after another paper revealed her second job.

Tressler covered high society, general assignments, human interest stories, men’s and women’s fashion and other stories for the newspaper for two months, Tressler said at a Los Angeles news conference Thursday. But she “very rarely” worked as a dancer, a skill that helped her pay for college, she said.

“Sometimes I would just go in for three hours at a time to get a workout in because stage rotation, if you’re doing it in 7-inch heels, is a really good way to get a workout in,” Tressler said. “And I didn’t have a gym membership. So, on days off I might just go in there in the afternoon and do a couple stage rotations and knock it out.”

The downside here? Well, that hag Gloria Allred is representing her.

Oh well, this should cleanse your palate.

    We need in depth coverage. Forget the front page. Cany ou say, “pull-out special edition”?

    She has high cheekbones. My guess is that she’s either an Indian or a lying Harvard professor running for the Senate.

    From Ista link – “Yes, the post is illustrated.”

    It’s almost like Driscoll can look right into my soul.

    I like the cut of that writer’s jib. I’m good with anything she has to say…any thing in print, preferably glossies, you can recommend?

    Does the Houston Chronicle accept skanky wrinkled 1 dollar bills as payment for their newspaper?

    What the hell? What ever happened to a woman’s right to choose what to do with her own body? I thought that was the Libtards flagship belief? She’s free to work as a dancer if she wants, the comfy-shoe crowd is just jealous of her gorgeous body and beautiful face. She’s a stronger woman than those PC weasels will ever be. You go, girl!

    what the hell business is it of the Chronicle’s what an employee does on her own time? Stripping is a constitutionally-protected 1st amendment activity

    get a lawyer, Hotstuff

    Meh. Don’t like the tat, and those look like aftermarket bolt-on boobs. Also, the shoes are too absurd.

    OTOH, by the standards of newspapers, she’s hot stuff. And compared to what goes on at newspapers, peeling is honest work.

    So I’m torn.

    “Her boss is obviously a woman.”

    Very likely. I dated a stripper back in 2000ish and she got canned under similar circumstances, while she was working for a newspaper. Her boss was indeed a women. People like to say us guy’s are vengeful, hell no. Nothing I’ve ever seen has beaten what women do to each other.
