Married Capt. John Hintz, a captain of a recruiting unit in Des Moines got fired for sending and receiving racy emails with a local school superintendent, Dr. Nancy Sebring, there. Sebring resigned her position earlier this year as a result of her indiscretion and began a law suit to keep the emails and Hintz’ name from being made public. According to the Des Moines Register;
The personal correspondence came to light following public records requests by The Des Moines Register and Omaha World-Herald seeking information about Sebring’s sudden exit from the Des Moines district in May. She had accepted an offer to become leader of Omaha’s public schools, but then resigned from the Des Moines job earlier than scheduled.
Normally, in recruiting, the challenge is to remind recruiters that prospects are off limits. There’s any number of recruiters over the years that have succumbed to temptation. And it’s a good way to instantly terminate one’s career.
This case sounds more or less like run of the mill adultery. As one of the comments at This Ain’t Hell ponders, will CPT Hinz get the same good deal that the Colonel got that was going all in on bigamy and fraud? I’m not holding my breath.
