Lawsuit causes me emotional distress

When I read that Tamara Dutton filed a lawsuit against Snohomish County for $750,000, well, I just shook my head in disbelief. This woman willingly had an affair with a married man who was also the county executive, and now she is asking for taxpayers to pay for her emotional distress? Unbelievable. She should have known better, and it amazes that she felt ostracized by her fellow employees? Of course, that might happen when everyone knows you slept with your boss. I hope the county fights this tooth and nail and she doesn’t get a dime.
