Fresh on the heels of the news that CIA Director David Petraeus is resigning allegedly over an extramarital affair, Lockheed Martin has announced that its incoming CEO Chris Kubasik has resigned over an inappropriate office relationship.
Multiple outlets, including Reuters and Bloomberg are reporting incoming Lockheed Martin CEO Christopher Kubasik has resigned after allegedly carrying on an inappropriate relationship with a subordinate employee.
He’d been appointed this summer and was set to take over Jan. 1. He previously served as president and COO of the defense giant.
The company’s board asked for and received kubasik (sic) resignation, according to Bloomberg.
Is there something in the water?
New Lockheed CEO won't serve, leaving now due to inappropriate relationship. With Petraeus news, bad day for such things. Guys. Please.—

Anyone else want to confess to an affair? Unless you're Obama himself, pretty sure it'll go unnoticed, right Lockheed Martin CEO?—

Looks like Waffle House’s CEO’s day isn’t going too well, either:
A former female employee has filed a police complaint alleging the CEO of Waffle House demanded she perform sexual acts on him in exchange for keeping her job.
The woman told Atlanta police the alleged harassment by Joseph Rogers Jr. lasted for nearly 10 years, from 2003 through June of this year. The Associated Press does not identify alleged victims of sexual harassment.
The police report quotes the woman as saying that Rogers tried to force her to have sex with him despite her repeated protests. She said that he also touched her breasts, tried to remove her clothes, made lewd comments, and insisted she perform sex acts on him at least once or twice a month. The woman, who identified herself as a single mother, told police she stayed in the job and endured the alleged harassment because she couldn’t find other employment with comparable pay. She said she gave Rogers a letter of resignation in June after her son secured a full college scholarship.
