Wikimedia COO a felon

ArrayIndexOutOfBound writes " has an article about Carolyn Doran, COO of Wikimedia. "Before she left [Wikimedia] in July, Carolyn Bothwell Doran, 45, had moved up from a part-time bookkeeper for the Wikimedia Foundation and spent six months as chief operating officer, responsible for personnel and financial management. At the time, she was on probation for a 2004 hit-and-run accident in Virginia that had landed her seven months in prison. Doran had multiple drunken-driving convictions, and records show earlier run-ins for theft, writing bad checks and wounding her boyfriend with a gunshot to the chest.""

Do personal concerns reflect upon the business activities of the person? If she was really good at her job, then why would the association with Wikimedia Foundation (or related orgs) be a problem? Perhaps it would be of concern if sentencing made her unavailable for work, or if felonies involved financial irregularities, but this seems not to be the case.
