Disgruntled journalist

Journalist Sarah Tressler has adopted a novel approach to highlight her sacking by a newspaper in Texas after allegedly failing to disclose certain facts in her job application.

According to media reports, a rival newspaper disclosed that, in addition to her day job, she spent her evenings working at a strip club. 

She was subsequently fired earlier this year for failing to reveal stripping as one of her occupations or pastimes when she applied for the journalist’s job.  She also failed to sign a morals clause.  She explains in media reports that she started stripping to pay off her student loans.

Now Sarah (30) has embarked on a coast-to-coast stripping tour to highlight her plight and she has her own blog, Diary of an Angry Stripper.  She has also accused her former newspaper employers of sex HR and asked the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission to investigate.
