Town manager, Scott Janke, who married a porn star last year was fired during an emergency meeting after the mayor and council members discovered the news. Read more on former town manager Scott Janke being fired for being married to pornstar Jazella Moore (real name Anabela Mota Janke) below.
The Fort Myers Beach town council voted 5-0 to fire Scott Janke “without cause” after Mayor Larry Kiker called the emergency Tuesday evening meeting.
Kiker said he had discovered that afternoon that Janke’s wife is an adult film star, and they took action hours later.
“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 revealed that Janke’s wife, Anabela Mota Janke, goes by the stage name Jazella Moore.
“Our heads are held high,” Scott Janke said. “We have nothing to be embarrassed about. We’ve done nothing wrong.”
Scott Janke will get a severance package worth six months salary, which comes to about $50,000, as well as health benefits.
Janke said he married in October and they are tending to their three teenage children.
Councilman Tom Babcock stated that Janke was fired because his wife’s profession brought an inaccurate image to Fort Myers Beach, according to the News-Press of Fort Myers.
“When you become a public figure you are held to a different level of scrutiny and ethics,” Babcock said.
