LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - It turns out a former Lubbock resident is at the center of the well-publicized downfall of Hewlett Packard's C.E.O. Mark Hurd. Numerous media accounts identify her as Jodie Fisher, 53, who is a businesswoman and actor. Fan sites as well as media accounts also say she has a degree in political science from Texas Tech.

Fisher, who was doing contract work for H.P., filed a claim of sexual harassment pertaining to Hurd. The company investigated and accused Hurd of filing inaccurate expense reports. H.P. said Hurd violated company's standards of business conduct and he resigned Friday under pressure.

Since then Fisher has put out a statement saying, "I was surprised and saddened that Mark Hurd lost his job over this. That was never my intention."

Part of that statement from her attorney, Gloria Allred says that the two "never had an affair or intimate sexual relationship." Hurd also has denied an affair.

The Fort Worth Star Telegram says Fisher is currently living in Dallas. She's been in films such as Easy Rider -- The Ride Back, and Blood Dolls. She also appeared on an NBC reality show called Age of Love.
