News: ‘Cuckold’ ex-cop, wife settle with Pueblo for $20,000

Intrepid reader Ben wrote me yesterday with a link to this story in the Rocky Mountain News about a former cop and his wife that are suing the Pueblo, CO police department for discriminatory termination, because of his cuckold relationship with his wife. Here’s an excerpt:

Michael and Tammy Bethel filed a federal lawsuit last year. In it, they said that Tammy Bethel is free to have sex with other people, as long as they are not married or minors, and provided she tells her husband about it.

Michael Bethel is not allowed to have sex with others, though he sometimes joins his wife when she is with others, the lawsuit stated.

The Bethels claim Michael Bethel was fired from the Pueblo police department, where he was a sergeant, after department officials learned of the arrangement.

Here’s the take of Rocky Mountain News blogger Mark Wolf: Who knew they did this stuff in Pueblo?

Answer: This stuff happens everywhere.

    Considering that he was fired without grounds, he should have received way more than $20,000. I don’t know what cops make in Colorado. But thats probably not not nearly enough money to tide him over until he he gets another job, especially considering attorney’s fees. Their should at least be another zero behind it.

    would have been funnier if the people who fired him also fucked his wife.
