Florida Town Manager Fired Over Porn Star Wife

Fort Myers Beach town manager Scott Janke was fired Tuesday after it recently came to light that his wife is an adult film actress who goes by the name of "Jazella Moore."

A town hall meeting is scheduled for Wednesday night to discuss a replacement for Janke, who had been the town manager since March 2008.

Mayor Larry Kiker said he heard the news of Janke's wife Tuesday while driving home from a family gathering, he said. Kiker called an emergency town council meeting Tuesday night. The town council and Kiker voted 5-0 to terminate Janke.

"It's not about him and her," Kiker said, adding that he considers Janke and his wife friends. "It's about the town."

"We did everything we could not to judge," Kiker said.

Councilman Bob Raymond indicated the decision was based largely on trust.

"In these types of jobs, trust is a very important thing," Raymond said. "If you lose that, you're losing a big thing.

"If you're working, and something comes up that you didn't tell (your bosses), what are they going to do? They're going to fire you."

Anabela Mota, who is known as the adult film actress Jazella Moore, was outed as Janke's wife in an article on the Adult Industry News Web site.

Janke has been terminated without cause, which means he receives six months severance pay and benefits. Janke is paid $106,000 a year.

Kiker said a clause in Janke's contract permits the council to fire him with a majority vote.

Janke declined comment, saying that he needs a few days to sort things out.
