University Diversity Coordinator Allegedly Ran Phone Sex Business [Video]

Unviversity of Colo Denver administrator allegedly ran phone sex business

Double-dipping with a phone sex line?

A University of Colorado Denver administrator is on paid leave after it was discovered that she was allegedly running a phone sex business during working hours.

The Denver CBS News affiliate, which broke the story, identified the administrator as Resa Cooper-Morning, the cultural diversity coordinator with the university’s Ethnic Studies department. The school has launched an internal investigation into the matter, which is expected to take about a month to complete.

Cooper-Morning reportedly launched the website ten years ago that contained many provocative photos of herself along with soft-core videos available through a membership fee. The website also offered a phone sex option at $1.49 a minute.

While university rules don’t prohibit employees from moonlighting in a second job, Cooper-Morning allegedly may have been taking phone sex calls in her university office while on the taxpayer’s dime. “The site says Cooper-Morning can be reached for phone sex Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. until late at night. Her university work hours are listed as 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.” Reportedly the website now says that she is only available after 3 pm, although it appears that the website has been taken off line.

According to university official Leanna Clark, “The University of Colorado Denver takes this allegation very seriously… It’s very important to us that our employees uphold the values of our organization while they are in the workplace.”

The administrator has not as yet made any public comment about the allegation.

Cooper-Morning’s daughter in law — who admits to be in the midst of a family feud with her mother in law — claimed that she witnessed the controversial multitasking: “She is taking calls at work… She takes them very discreetly, shuts her door (and) takes phone sex calls on CU of Denver’s pay.”

Cooper-Morning was honored in 2008 by the university for her community service.
