McDonald's announced the ouster of CEO Steve Easterbook Sunday over an inappropriate relationship with an employee. The company's board determined that Easterbrook "violated company policy and demonstrated poor judgment involving a recent consensual relationship with an employee," it announced. Desiree Moore, an attorney for Easterbrook, told FOX Business that Easterbrook "is deeply grateful for his time at McDonald's and continues to believe in the company's future. "He acknowledges his error in judgment and supports the company's decision," Moore said, "He will not be commenting further at this time." McDonald's named Chris Kempczinski, the McDonald's USA president, as its new president and CEO. He was also elected to the board of directors.
Fox News Radio's Guy Benson says this makes Katie Hill's claims of double standards completely absurd.
