A reporter who was fired last year from the Houston Chronicle after she was outed as a stripper has landed a new journalism job.
Sarah Tressler, 30, was fired in April as a society reporter for the newspaper after failing to inform her supervisors of her after-hours career, which she chronicled on her blog, “Diary of an Angry Stripper.” Tressler’s second job was revealed by Houston Press’ Richard Connelly in a blog posting in March.
She’s now a reporter for the San Antonio Express-News, covering “cops, crime and general mayhem,” according to her Twitter account, which has more than 1,500 followers.
Unfortunately she had to drag the loathsome Gloria Allred into it.
After hiring celebrity attorney Gloria Allred, Tressler sued her former employer’s parent company, the Hearst Corp., which also owns the Express-News, alleging that the firing was unfair.
“In order to support herself, Sarah started performing as an exotic dancer beginning when she was 22 years old,” Allred said in a statement in May. “Her only other job at that time was as a barista at Starbucks earning $7.25 an hour. She needed the extra money to help pay for college and other expenses.”
