Grouper founder's pants perpetually on fire

Jerry Guo's long trail of apparent deception and dishonesty

By  

Gadling Editor-in-Chief Grant Martin told Betabeat in an email that "Jerry was terminated because he was taking old, past published posts and tucking them into the recent (but out of sight) queue so that our payment system would automatically sweep through and double pay him."

Gadling also apparently was farming out his blogging assignments to elance for $5 a shot. (Crappy work if you can get it!)

Martin concludes his email to Betabeat with this: "Jerry’s tenure at Gadling was full of him trying to work our system, squeeze us for more money and earn free travel. I’m glad that he’s gone, but I wish that I had been more proactive in reaching out to his other/future editors."

Well, then! With a now quite public record of fraud and flimflammery under his belt, you have to wonder what Guo will do for employment should his oh-so-profitable group dating site go under. Seriously, with that kind of track record, where would he turn?

Mr. Guo, Goldman Sachs is on Line One with a lucrative job offer!
