IS THIS “THE OTHER WOMAN” FOR TEMPE POLICE CHIEF TOM RYFF?
She is according to tempepolicecloset.com. The website, ran by former and current City of Tempe employees, says Ryff and Mrs. Charlene Berge-Blum had a “longtime, recent…inappropriate relationship.” Ryff has also told friends that he can “help them get a good deal” on cars at Berge Ford in Mesa, according to the website. But the most scandalous part of this alleged affair is Ryff yelling, “I’m not f***ing my wife,” while talking on the phone with Berge-Blum in his police department office.
Operation-Nation learned that Berge-Blum is married to Randall E. Blum. He owns a real estate investment company (defunct) in Mesa. Ryff is also married.
This information has been on tempepolicecloset for several months. But once again, “Teflon Tom” Ryff does not face any pressure from the public or media to resign. South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford and Nevada Senator John Ensign both resigned after their affairs. Let’s also not forget the infamous President Bill Clinton “lie” which made Kenneth Starr,well, a “star.”
Does Ryff really have complete control of not only the entire City of Tempe government, but also the greater Phoenix “mainstream” media (except for CBS 5)?
Cheating is now an epidemic, fueled, I suspect, by Viagra. When my husband found another, much younger woman, he started ordering Viagra from Canada. This is his second intense affair, he only recovered from the first when she said she was pg, she was only going thru menopause. Another factor that I think encourages men to cheat are all the TV ads which show couples, an old grey haired man with a much, much younger woman. What do you think.
I cannot believe that he was dating (for lack of a better word) her. I hope he loses his position. Poor character is not a quality anybody wants in a police chief.
