Submission + - Former Wikimedia COO "was convicted felon"

MutantEnemy writes: After banging on at Wikipedia for pretty frivolous reasons, The Register finally has something serious to say: they allege that the former Chief Operating Officer of the Wikimedia Foundation was a convicted felon. Jimbo Wales, "spiritual leader" of the project, has discussed this matter on the Foundation mailing list, denied that anyone in the Foundation knew about this until The Register broke its story, and promised to personally pay for any losses in the (as he sees it, unlikely) event that said COO stole anything.
