No; if they had dirt on him they would have offered a “shut-up-and-we’ll-let-you-resign” deal. He wouldn’t have come out and said what was going on.
Could be, but it also could be that he decided he would rather come clean to his wife and family than continue to be blackmailed.
“No; if they had dirt on him they would have offered a ‘shut-up-and-well-let-you-resign’ deal. He wouldnt have come out and said what was going on.”
WRONG!!! This is how you STOP blackmail.
Perhaps he got to the point where he was unwilling to be blackmailed further and decided to pull the trigger on himself.
