Following revelations that the alt-weekly's coordinator for club advertising secretly contributed to the Stranger's music blog and newspaper under the pseudonym "Keenan Bowen," both she and the editor who solicited the articles resigned. In an interview with the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, Editor Dan Savage calls Music Editor David Segal's arrangement with staffer Bailee Martin "a lapse in editorial judgment, and a serious one." But Savage also said the potential for conflict appears to have been untapped, and the weekly will repost all of Martin's stories upon review.
