WSJ: FaceBook Investigating Just-Resigned Uber-Feminist Executive Sheryl Sandberg For Using Company Resources for Her Own Benefit, Including to Fund Her Side-Hustle, the Feminist "Lean In" Organization


It looks like she's been investigated for having appropriated the company's workers for her own benefit -- specifically, for having drafted FaceBook workers to write her book for her.

Like that other feminist icon, Andrew Cuomo.

Allegedly, I mean.

The lawyers investigating Facebook operating chief Sheryl Sandberg's use of corporate resources are examining behavior going back several years, said people familiar with the matter, focusing on the extent to which staffers worked on her personal projects.

A number of employees have been interviewed as part of the investigation by Facebook parent Meta Platforms Inc., the people said, adding that the review has been under way since at least last fall.

It includes an examination of the work Facebook employees did to support her foundation, Lean In, which advocates for women in the workplace, as well as the writing and promotion of her second book "Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resilience, and Finding Joy," which focused on her grieving process following the sudden death of her husband, SurveyMonkey CEO Dave Goldberg, in 2015, the people said.

The Wall Street Journal previously reported that the investigation included a review of Ms. Sandberg's use of corporate resources to help plan her coming wedding. That is a small piece of the investigation, according to the people familiar with the matter, who said it involves a broader review of Ms. Sandberg's personal use of Facebook's resources over many years.

Ms. Sandberg, 52 years old, announced last week she was resigning from her day-to-day role after 14 years, though she said she would continue to serve on the board of directors. Ms. Sandberg has been the longtime lieutenant to Chief Executive Mark Zuckerberg, and in that role--and as the author of the leadership book "Lean In"--became one of the most prominent women in business. Ms. Sandberg said she was looking forward to spending more time on her foundation and women's issues.

LOL. She has to slip in "spending more time" on my feminist charity thing.

Ms. Sandberg has told friends and co-workers that she decided to step down because she was burned-out and weary of continuing her role as a "punching bag" for Meta's critics.

I'm sure she gets criticized but isn't the main "punching bag" the, you know, maaaan* who runs FaceBook?


Ms. Sandberg could be asked to repay the company for employee time spent on her personal work, some of the people said. Some within Meta close to the investigation worry about potential Securities and Exchange Commission violations if Ms. Sandberg used professional resources for personal matters without adequate disclosures, although it isn't yet clear what such violations might be, people familiar with the matter said.

Just a feel-good story for youse guys and youse gals.

* Or mandroid. Or cvckbot.
