University Employee Who Ran Phone Sex, Escort Websites Will Keep Her Job

A University of Colorado administrator who was found to be moonlighting as an adult escort will keep her job - even though she had previously been suspended for running a phone sex website during work hours.

Resa Cooper-Morning, the Cultural Diversity Coordinator at the University's Ethnic Studies department, was already serving a suspension for running a phone sex website during work hours.  Now, it appears that Cooper-Morning was also selling her services as an escort through another website called "Fantasy Elite."

On her website, Cooper-Morning specifies certain aspects of her services, including kissing, lap dances and "...pleasurable oil massage that will linger in your mind until we meet again."

Despite this, since it cannot be proven that Cooper-Morning exchanged sexual favors for cash, the university claims it has no standing to fire her.

"The University does not condone Ms. Cooper-Morning's activities,"  said CU Denver Chancellor of Communications, Leanna Clark in an interview with CBS 4 News in Denver.

"But under the law, there are limits on actions that employers can take regarding off-duty conduct of employees."

However, in its investigation, CBS claims that the hours that she offered her services that were listed on the website did, indeed, overlap with the hours that she was scheduled to work at the University. The website has since been removed from the Internet making it difficult to prove this allegation.

CBS 4 also uncovered a review of Cooper-Morning's "services" from 2007 which read, "This lady is beautiful, warm brown skin, lovely to touch.  She made me feel enchanted throughout our date and did a little extra to make this special for me."

It is unclear what the "extra" services that are alluded to consisted of.
