Poor Suzy Favor Hamilton. The hits just keep coming to the former Vegas prostitute and U.S. Olympian who had a side career serving as a spokesperson for a variety of companies and special interest groups. Now comes word from the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association, via its newsletter “Tater Talk,” that she is losing her job. The growers write (from Dec. 21 newsletter): We have been in contact with Suzy Favor Hamilton today and she has indicated to us that the story we are hearing in the news is true. Earlier today, the WPVGA Board of Directors has approved the revocation of our contract with Favor Hamilton, under the termination clause related to moral turpitude, situations that would reflect unfavorably on the WPVGA. She has agreed to the revocation of the contract. We are deeply sorry to learn of this turn of events and sincerely wish her well in finding stability in her future. We ask that you are respectful of her struggles in life. This is a major blow to Favor Hamilton, born in Stevens Point, Wisconsin and educated at the University of Wisconsin. It’s unclear what the potato and vegetable growers paid Favor Hamilton, but at this point it’s more about perception for the vegetable community. The growers once boasted on their website (cached page): Who better to inspire Wisconsinites to eat fresh vegetables than Suzy Favor Hamilton? … Duane Maatz, Executive Director for the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association (WPVGA) notes, “Suzy is a perfect fit to deliver the message that potatoes are nutritious and fit into an active, healthy lifestyle. She’s accomplished a lot in her lifetime and overcome hurdles as well. She understands the importance of eating right and she knows how to motivate people. And she’s just as busy as the rest of us — she understands how difficult it can be to find the time to prepare a healthy meal. The association is busy scrubbing its site of any mention of Suzy. Of course you don’t want your potatoes and vegetables associated with a hooker. That’ll totally kill sales. [Suzy Favor Hamilton cooking potatoes - Vimeo] Filed under: Other Sports
