Some Ad Guys Are Real Creeps

“Quiznos Marketing Exec Arrested in Chat Room Sex Sting” the Ad Age headline rings out, having made its way from the New York Post’s newroom.
Quiznos’ senior VP of marketing, Scott Lippitt, 47, faces at least five felony charges, including criminal attempt at sexual assault on a child; enticement of a child; contributing to the delinquency of a minor; internet luring; and internet sexual exploitation of a child, according to documents from the Fremont County Court clerk’s office in Colorado.
Lippitt allegedly wanted to teach a 13-year old girl “how to be a woman.”
