TechCrunch.com reported that a bartender from NY was fired because she blogged about Belgian Minister of Defense Pieter De Crem bar visit. A few days after her post, Nathalie's boss received a call from Defense Minister's office and she was fired straight away!

According to TechCrunch,

Following his visit, bartender Nathalie Lubbe Bakker blogged about their visit
(in Dutch), talking about how disgusted she was of how drunk De Crem was and how
embarrassed she was about his behavior. Worst part, she wrote, was the fact that
one of the politician’s advisors admitted to her that the meetings they were
there for on taxpayer’s money were in fact canceled because the UN was meeting
in Geneva (which is about 330 miles from Brussels).

A couple of days later, someone from De Crem’s office had a telephone call with Nathalie’s boss, after which she was promptly fired. This was initially denied by the politician, and it remains unclear if her termination was a direct result of the call or the blog post in question.
Well I think this was abuse of power from De Crem’s part. The trip was paid by Belgian tax-payers. Even though the meeting was canceled, he still choose to come to NY just because " he’d never visited the city anyway" and got drunk in a bar.

When his action was exposed on net by a civic-minded blogger, he got the blogger fired.

I say - with all due respect, Mr. Pieter De Crem, you should be fired, not her!
