WICHITA — An otherwise routine e-mail about a state water advisory committee meeting in Hutchinson took a sexy – and shocking – turn when Joe Yager forwarded it.
Yager, CEO of the Regional Economic Area Partnership, forwarded a release from the state water office to members of REAP’s water committee. Yager altered the e-mail before he forwarded it, and he says he didn’t realize it until one of the e-mail recipients alerted him.
The beginning of the e-mail starts off normally and immediately gets racy.
“The Kansas Water Office‘s (KWO) I am an athletic person who loves to have sex. I am looking for some discrete sex on the side with either one or more women. I would also be willing to join a couple for some fun, as long as it is for the ladies pleasure. My name says it all, so maybe we can chat.”
The e-mail gets significantly more salacious as it goes until it abruptly returns to news about the Lower Arkansas Basin advisory committee.
“I feel terrible about it,” Yager says. “I don’t know how it happened. I’m concerned over that.”
He speculates that he inadvertently copied and pasted the sex text while trying to delete it.
“I went back, and I looked, and I had a junk e-mail – spam e-mail – that looked like it was from a friend that I opened,” Yager says. “I had two e-mails open, and I don’t know how it inserted language into the other one.”
