FLAGLER BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The former Fort Myers Beach town manager who was fired last year because he married a porn star has taken himself out of the running for the city manager job in Flagler Beach.
Scott Janke was one of four finalists for the position but
withdrew himself from consideration Thursday. Previously considered a front-runner by two the city's four commissioners, Janke said he wanted to avoid the commotion his application was creating.
Janke lost his Fort Myers Beach job in July 2009 when the town
council unanimously voted to fire him. They had learned his wife, Anabela Mota Janke, was an adult film star, working under the name Jazella Moore.
Before working in Fort Myers Beach, Janke worked for the City of
Marathon in the Keys and various local governments throughout
Alaska since 1989.
