Rabe joined the Bulletin as its business manager during Russell Davis’s tenure and was promoted to editor after John Scalzi was elected president. Her resignation comes on the heels of a series of controversies concerning content of four consecutive issues. Even before Rabe resigned, Scalzi announced the formation of a task force to look at the Bulletin‘s content and purpose.
