    Oh and I too worked with Anita unfortunately! I 100% believe she did this – the Karma train has come full circle on this self rightous woman! She wouldn’t have been fired had there not been enough evidence to do so! Administrative Leave to firing – hmmmm….couldn’t have happened to a better person :) Holy than thou – NOT!

        Thank you Vicky – although I must say it’s out of character for her – she did get in the end what she deserved – I remember her laughing about others misfortunes – smirking with her newly found higher archy friends – can not wait to see how this plays out and I don’t wish ill on anyone – if you are truly a good person and lead a good life – good things will come to you – when you are fake and use people – eh – you get yours!

    I know Anita and work with her on several other projects. She absolutely did not do this nor would she ever think about doing such a dispicable thing. Remember, innocent until proven guilty. I will keep her in my thoughts & prayers during this very difficult time for her family.
