What the what?!
Reports are coming out that a former TV journalist in Florida was the person who tipped off the authorities about disgraced Subway pitchman Jared Fogle.
The ex-journalist claims Fogle had numerous conversations with her several years ago, telling her that middle school girls are “hot.”
Fogle, of course, has been under scrutiny after law enforcement raided his home last week allegedly in a child pornography investigation that initially centered on one of the employees of his foundation.
The ex-journo obviously was shocked by Fogle’s alleged sentiment, stating:
“I thought to myself, ‘Did he really say that to me?'”
She also dismissed the comments as jokes:
“No they weren’t jokes. They were very serious.”
And while she won’t reveal what was said, she also claims some comments he made were even worse than that one. Hmmm.
Apparently, the FBI had her wear a wire at one point around Fogle, and the recordings she obtained were integral to the federal investigation.
Crazy, crazy stuff.
