Red Cross consensual firing updated

As previously indicated, the Red Cross did not fire the person who was in the so-called subordinate position re this consensual relationship.  Subordinate was Paige Roberts, executive director of the Southeast Mississippi Chapter of the Red Cross. She is married and the mother of two children.  The Red Cross would not reveal their reasons for firing the CEO and not firing Roberts.  Consensual relationship does mean the involvement of at least two persons.  The Red Cross’s action in this case was quick and Draconian.  A consensual relationship just does not seem to me to be an immediate danger to the reputation and functioning of the Red Cross.  I still think that the underlying dynamic concerning this firing has not been revealed.
