There are few mentions of Reardon in either report. Reardon reportedly called Haakenson the evening the deputy executive confronted the aide about the sexually explicit images found on the laptop. The substance of that call is not detailed. Hulten also reportedly emailed Reardon after a meeting with Clawson, the human resources director. The aide asked if Reardon had some work for him to do, and suggested that he had convinced Clawson there was an acceptable explanation for how the pornography wound up on the computer.

In fact, Clawson told the investigator, she hadn’t cleared Hulten, but was checking whether Hulten’s explanation for how the images got on the computer were “plausible or logical.”

After conferring with an information system manager, Clawson concluded “any reasonable person would think Hulten” was responsible.
