    Iowa college president steps down after beer photo

    August 29, 2008 - 8:15am
    FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) - An Iowa community college president resigned less than a week after a photo was published appearing to show him pouring beer into a young woman's mouth.

    The school's board of trustees on Thursday unanimously approved Robert Paxton's resignation. It also approved a severance package that officials said was valued at about $400,000.

    Mark Crimmins, the president of the board, said although the incident happened in Paxton's private life, "it reflected poorly on the college."

    "Based on our discussions, it was determined that it would probably be in Dr. Paxton's best interest and the college's best interest that he resign as president," Crimmins said.

    The photo, which was published Saturday in The Des Moines Register, shows Paxton with a group of young people on a boat. He is holding a small keg above a young woman's head. The Register said the photo was taken over the Fourth of July weekend at Lake Okoboji and sent to the paper unsolicited.

    A message left at Paxton's office wasn't immediately returned Thursday. He previously defended the photograph, saying the keg shown was broken and wasn't dispensing beer.

    Paxton, president of the Fort Dodge school for 13 years, signed a three-year contract days before the photo was taken. As part of his severance package, he will be paid for two of those years and get health benefits for a period of time.

    Chuck Peterson, former vice president of financial affairs, was tapped to step in as liaison during the search for Paxton's replacement.

    With about half the people having camera phones or digital cameras its easier and easier for pictures like this to be taken.
    I will smash your face into a car windshield and then take your mother, Dorothy Mantooth, out to a nice seafood dinner and never call her again!

    Tell me about it, this morning, I woke up and I shit a squirrel, but what I can't get is the damn thing is still alive. So now, I've got a shit covered squirrel running around my office and I don't know what to name it.

    Am I missing something from this story? Were the females underaged?

    If everyone shown drinking in the photo are of legal age, no nudity is involved what is wrong here?

    Have the moralists now decided people can no longer drink alcohol or enjoy a party on a boat?
    If we don't fight hard enough for the things we stand for, at some point we have to recognize that we don't really stand for them.

    I think the reason he was forced out because it was a Coors Light keg and they did not want anyone associated with their school who thinks it is OK to drink such low quality beer.

    OR maybe they wanted him to have more time to work on his tan.

    I also see no reason to resign for this. It's ludicrous!

    Were they students of the college or underage? If not I don't see a reason for him to be forced to resign.
