Miss America CEO Sam Haskell Resigns Amid Crude E-Mail Scandal

Miss America CEO suspended over 'inappropriate' leaked emails
The head of the organization that stages the Miss America beauty pageant and other leaders with the group resigned on Saturday after a report this week alleging that emails he had sent were derogatory toward past winners.
The Miss America Organization was founded in 1921 and nowadays annually hosts pageants open to women aged from 17 to 24 who live in the United States to participate.
Randle, responding to a 2015 email in which Haskell had written demeaningly about the former pageant victor, wrote, "She's a healthy one!" the Huffington Post reported.
Mallory Hagan made the request on Facebook early Saturday hours before the top leadership of the New Jersey-based Miss America Organization resigned.
Also exiting is president and chief operating officer Josh Randle, who tendered his resignation.
But he nonetheless apologized to her on Saturday, saying the comment does not reflect his values or those of the organization.
Dick Clark Productions, which puts on the show annually, cut ties with the pageant after Haskell's emails came to light, calling them "appalling".
"While it is reassuring that some of the perpetrators of the abuses within the Miss America Organization have resigned, this by no means fulfills the need for a thorough housecleaning of the Board of Directors", Kate and Gretchen started her statement.
Also on Saturday, one of the main recipients of fundraising from the Miss America Organization said it was reviewing its association with Miss America.
Several of the emails targeted Mallory Hagan, who won the 2013 pageant, claiming she had gained weight after winning and speculating about how many men she had sex with.
Gretchen Carlson - a pageant victor in 1989, a former board member of the Miss America Organization, and a former Fox journalist who sued Roger Ailes for sexual harassment and exposed a culture of terror at Fox News - was also regularly criticized and described as a "snake" and "INFUCKINGSANE".
Miss America announced on Friday that they would suspend Haskell pending an investigation into the emails where he joked about contestant's being "c-ts" and called women "huge" and "gross". Mr. Haskell's resignation is effective immediately, while Mr. Randle and Mr. Weidner will remain for a few weeks to help with a leadership transition.
The internal emails, in an explosive report by The Huffington Post, revealed a bunch of name-calling, slut- and fat-shaming.
Haskell, in a statement accompanying his suspension on Friday, said the emails cited by the Huffington Post were "conveniently edited".
