From the Augusta Chronicle :

_Two fired National Wild Turkey Federation executives have filed suit against the organization and its governing board alleging recent termination…was the result of “a well-orchestrated smear campaign” involving lies and defamation.

CEO Carl Brown, a 27-year employee, and Vice President Dick Rosenlieb, a 19-year employee, contend…their firings were based on false accusations leveled by unnamed members of NWTF’s 18-person board._
