MYERS "RETALIATED" ON JOANNE RUFFNER
WHEN SHE REPORTED HIM TO AUTHORITIES

It was a most unlikely couple indeed. There sitting close together in an easy chair in a Kansas City, Mo. hotel room, where intimacies later occurred, was a dark-haired, attractive young woman and a bald, Elmer-Fudd look alike, 45 year-old Army chaplain Mike Myers.

The aging captain was grinning ear-to-ear at his good fortune. What smiling and vivacious Joanne Ruffner didn't know at the time, was Myers had pulled an elaborate hoax on her, apparently to get her into bed.

The lover-boy didn't let on he was a "man-of-the-cloth" and married with two teen-aged children. His story was he was an intelligence officer soon to be posted to Iraq. Ruffner has turned over to cops dozens of e-mails, written between 2005 and 2006, professing adoration and promising marriage. In fact, the two-timing chaplain had even set a date for the nuptials. It was all a cruel charade, however, as Ruffner, a 33 year-old divorcee, learned when the man of her dreams wrote her from Camp Zama, Japan last year and admitted he had a wife and kids.

The spurned Arizona woman did some checking and found out Myers had been deceiving her all along, so she contacted the Army and reported him. Myers got off easy with a slap-on-the-wrist field-grade Article 15 for adultery and conduct unbecoming an officer. The long-toothed lothario remained in the military.

CHAPLAIN ALLEGEDLY RETALIATES ON ONE-TIME SWEETHEART
POSTS HER NUDE PIX ON THE INTERNET

But then, an angry Myers allegedly retaliated on his former sweetheart, sending nude photos of her (taken during the love nest get-together in the Missouri hotel room) to her boss and co-workers as well as posting them on several Internet sex sites.

The indignant chaplain even had the audacity to write the frightened Ruffner she was a "mental case." The captain also threatened to "go to the JAG" to get a "restraining order" against her.

Now the Tucson native is trying to put the pieces of her shattered life back together. Her trust in men badly damaged by the ordeal Myers allegedly put her through, she awaits the results of an Article 32 preliminary hearing (to be held May 23 in Japan) and hopes the chaplain is appropriately punished.

We think, if the facts are correct, this guy needs to be court-martialed.

According to authorities, Myers faces up to 27 years in prison and a bad conduct discharge if found guilty of all charges lodged against him.
