City fires official wed to porn star

July 23, 2009|Times Wire Reports

A town manager who married a porn star last year was fired when the mayor and council members learned about her.

The Fort Myers Beach town council voted 5-0 to fire Scott Janke "without cause" after Mayor Larry Kiker called an emergency meeting Tuesday.

Kiker said he learned that afternoon that Janke's wife is an adult film star.

"At no time did we make a judgment call on the activities of Mr. Janke or his wife," Kiker told the Associated Press. "It's a matter of how effective he becomes after this situation. How much disruption there is."

Adult Industry News recently reported that Janke's wife, Anabela Mota Janke, goes by the stage name Jazella Moore. "Our heads are held high," Scott Janke said. "We've done nothing wrong."
