Vanderbilt employee accused of tossing LGBT newspapers

August 9, 2012

A longtime Vanderbilt University employee is in trouble after cameras caught her taking dozens of newspapers and tossing them straight into the trash.

The papers were editions of Out & About, a monthly publication geared toward Nashville's gay and lesbian community.

For Out & About Editor Patrick Armstrong, it answers a frustrating and lingering question over what has been happening.

"It's our work being thrown in the garbage can," Armstrong said. "This had been going on for a year."

Police said the woman, identified as a longtime Vanderbilt employee, is seen in two different surveillance videos taking all the papers from a newsstand in Light Hall.
