Archer is a liar. He may have been fired because “he wasn’t a good fit for the position” but that’s only because they don’t want anything on paper admitting he did what he did. The same reason they started a rumor about an “inappropriate relationship” to answer questions when they arise and discredit those who might suggest otherwise. But I’m just a squirrel, what do I know? ;o)
