Yellow blazer to orange jumpsuit for Junker?

Monday February 20th, 2012

John Junker, ousted Fiesta Bowl CEO, will formalize his shaming of the yellow-blazer brotherhood on Tuesday, according to the Arizona Republic. The paper spoke to Junker's defense attorney, who says his client will plead guilty to state and federal felony charges stemming from his use of bowl employees and resources to influence politicians in the area.

Sadly, however, we'll be deprived of the privilege of hearing any more from Junker regarding the necessity of taking a bowl security consultant to a Phoenix strip club. More from the Republic report: "Despite accusations in the report that Junker used bowl funds for questionable spending, he will not be charged with any crimes related to spending at the Fiesta Bowl under the plea agreement."
