Ex-Staples Exec Uses Easy Button on Strippers

By Published on .

Former Staples marketing exec James Dorman gave new meaning to the slogan "That Was Easy," when he embezzled nearly $600,000 from the company between 2003 and 2005. It seems that Mr. Dorman was submitting invoices for non-existent vendors and misusing his corporate travel funds to pay for personal travel for himself and three women. And that's where it gets interesting. Mr. Dorman met two of the three women while they were working in Dallas strip clubs, and he proceeded to use his corporate American Express card to buy them diamond jewelry and a trip to the Grammy Awards. Alas, Mr. Dorman's day of reckoning is here. The Associated Press reports that Dorman, who held the title VP-marketing and sales, was sentenced to 3 ½ years in prison. He will also need to cough up $585,000 in restitution to the office products retailer.
