    The Associated Press reports that Robert "Joe" Halderman, the man who attempted to blackmail David Letterman with information about the late night talk show host's intra-office affairs, has been released from jail early. Halderman served four months of a six-month sentence and was released early due to good behavior. That's ironic. His very bad behavior landed him in jail and his good behavior while in jail got him out. His release was probably hastened by a case of prison overcrowding.

    Last Fall, Halderman, who was in a relationship with one of the women that Letterman had an affair with, tried to strong-arm Letterman out of $2 million in order to keep quiet about the affairs. Letterman wasn't buying it, literally, and even admitted on air that he had sexual relations with women who worked for his namesake show.

    Halderman has to complete 1,000 hours of community service as well. He is looking for a new job, reports his lawyer.

    Did Halderman get off easy? Should David Letterman give him a job? I kid, I kid.
