It seems to me that the leak was not accidental. The two city managers had no business discussing "confidential personnel matters" in a bar....with in ear shot of a newspaper reporter!! One of the first lessons I learned as a member of MPPD was never to talk about anything around a reporter.
A case could be made that this was an attempt at payback for the decision concerning Officer Vasquez reinstatement with full back pay
Maybe Officer Vasquez has a law suit here. If he should decide to sue the city I would like to point out, so far, the score is Jeff Vazquez 2 City of MP 0!
The current City manager should be disciplined for his lack of judgement...maybe even fired

Apparently seeing a prostitute while on duty doesn't qualify. Christopher Dorner, ex-Los Angeles cop who is currently on a killing rampage down there got fired for complaining a fellow officer used excessive force, though.
