More to the Story?

Was Wal-Mart's manager of luxury goods for its Sam's Club chain, Dee Breazeale, dismissed as a result of the allegations that some of the retailer's "always low prices" were slapped on fakes masquerading as Fendi?

Or did it have something to do with the fact that Wal-Mart had named Dee to serve on the advisory council to the National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, provoking criticism from conservative consumers?

Presumably there's a great deal more to the story than has been reported thus far, but Wal-Mart should take note that neither cheating customers nor engaging in employment discrimination makes good (fashion) sense.

Gosh, Susan, do we have some proof of that rather scandalous accusation?

What accusation? The AP reported circumstances that sound suspicious on at least a couple of levels, and I hope that they are investigated more thoroughly -- and publicly.
