Bracey amends complaint

Plaintiff Kimberly Bracey amended her sexual harassment lawsuit against Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber and the city today. Mrs. Bracey was the former Executive Assistant to Mayor Yarber.   The original complaint stated:


 18. In August or September 2014, Plaintiff was required to attend another fundraiser for Defendant Yarber and Tyrone Lewis in Atlanta that was hosted by Mitzi Bickers. After the fundraiser Plaintiff was required to go with Defendant Yarber and Aaron Banks for another gathering at Ms. Bicker's home. Again strippers wearing only body paint greeted them at the door. Ms. Bickers had arranged for a woman to have a sexual relationship with Defendant Yarber while Plaintiff was attending a fundraiser in Atlanta, Georgia.

The paragraph was amended to

18. In August or September 2014, Plaintiff was required to attend another fundraiser for Defendant Yarber and Tyrone Lewis in Atlanta that was hosted by Mitzi Bickers. Ms. Bickers had arranged for a woman to have a sexual relationship with Defendant Yarber while Plaintiff was attending this fundraiser in Atlanta, Georgia. The next day after the fundraiser, Plaintiff was required to go with Defendant Yarber for another gathering at Ms. Bickers’ home. Again strippers wearing only body paint greeted them at the door. While Tyrone Lewis and his staff were present at the fundraiser, they were not present the next day when strippers were present at Ms. Bickers’ home.

Mr. Banks told JJ that he and then-Sheriff Lewis flew back the next day and arrived in Jackson in the early afternoon on that Saturday.  The fund-raiser was held on Friday night.  Mr. Banks was a Deputy Chief Administrative Officer in the Yarber Administration when the fund-raiser was held.  He was the campaign manager for Tyrone Lewis in his 2011 and 2015 campaigns for Sheriff.

A special meeting of the Jackson City Council will be held tomorrow to discuss the lawsuit.

So, this inaccuracy was only caught by one of those erroneously mentioned in the suit. How many other inaccuracies are there??

I'm totally confused by paragraph 18. Are they saying that The Reverend Mayor and staff DID go Chez Mitzi, on the second day? Or did they NOT go? If they DID go, on the second day, to the home of Reverend Mitzi, did they go at a time when the strippers were not at the door, "greeting"? Or, maybe the strippers were kept outdoors, and as "The Yard Help", are not to be counted as 'present'.

So, the importance of the correction seems to be that Tyromes is now able to say "I know nuthin"?

If I were the legal reps for Bracey, I'd be very concerned with putting her up on the witness stand...should it go to trial, that is. On second thought, knowing this firm, it'll probably settle.

How do we know there were strippers at the door?

Just when one thinks politics can't get more insane, we have this and...drum roll...

Rick Perry is going to be on Dancing with the Stars.

And, using Trump's crazy logic about Mrs. Weiner being a security risk, shouldn't we worry that Melania was raised and educated in the old Soviet Union and might be a sleeper spy who was told to seduce Trump and convince him to run for President?

God help us! We've put the patients in charge of the asylum!

Can someone "in the know" please tell me why the hell the mayor of Jackson, MS needs to have a "funraiser" in Atlanta, New Orleans and Houston TX? At the time he was the potential mayor of Jackson, MS. Do they think he's a celebrity or the president? $1000 to eat dinner with the mayor in New Orleans....I'll pass. This is out of control.

8:22 and 8:31 - 7:38's comment is accurate. By your commentary and dismissal of that viewpoint I assume you are Trump supporters? Let me tell you what is going to happen. Trump is a wack job, a bigot and completely unfit for the position of President. He will continue to illustrate this as we move forward. His campaign is a comedy of errors. he will not win the election.
Perhaps you would like to declare your intention to leave the country if Clinton is elected? That would be very nice. Please encourage all of your small minded, fake christian racist bigot friends in Mississippi to join your exodus.

Plaintiffs may have lost the high ground. They should have dotted their "i"s and cross their "t"s before filing the original complaint. This hurts the Plaintiff team's credibility. If they got one thing wrong, what else may be wrong or inaccurate?

Get a court order, pull all hard drives of city employees and you will find they all use city equipment for personal use at one time in their career. As a former 33 year civil service employee, you think we sit at our desk and never use our agency technology for personal use! For you Pastor Mayor. You are playing with people careers. Remember BLACK LIVES AND THEIR FAMILIES MATTER!!! If you need more booty, you can troll the streets of Jackson at night pretending to save souls.

8:57 I guess the US Army listed Hillary Clinton and others asan internal security risks just for the heck of it.I did not see a Trump on this list.See for yourself here. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2016/aug/23/hillary-clinton-pegged-as-insider-threat-in-army-u/

9:23 - so - you think Donald Trump with access to nuclear launch codes and the ability to alienate every country on the planet is not a security threat? Clinton may be dirty and self-serving in areas but she is not prone to rash reactionary adolescent bluster and off the cuff inane and obtuse pronouncements. She is the lesser of two unfortunate choices.
She does have governmental experience, foreign policy knowledge and is accepted on an international level by the allies of the US. She is smart and educated. That should be enough. In addition she has not declared bankruptcy 4 times, nor has she embarrassed our country on a global level by making racist or bigoted statements on a regular basis while she stands as a contender for the presidency of our country. With the checks and balances held by Congress and the high probability that her actions will be closely monitored - Clinton is the only viable choice this country has at the moment.

I thought for a second you were talking about the current president. Next?

8:40 those fundraisers - along with others that are not included in this suit or your question,were generally aimed at 'engineering firms' with the sales pitch that the consent decree contract could be reworked along with the new sales tax work. I would suggest that you check his campaign finance statements to see the contributors - but he hasn't filed them.

and this has what to do with the subject of the post?

Kingfish cousin Catfish said...

Yeah, what does Clinton and Trump have to do with Tony's horndoggin' around Hotlanta and Nawlins

Anonymous said...

Maybe Mayor Rev. Tony's alleged behavior reminds us all of Bill Clinton's exploits and subsequent lies and his wife's rush to defend him, are related in our minds?? Even Marshall Ramsey did an excellent job of linking the two. Us sitting out here in "communication land" just flow from Jackson's power base to the national power base, which of course includes both Clintons and Trump.

I am still Pollyanna enough to believe there are some moral people in politics.

My apologies for the fact that responses have gone off-topic. But....some stupid comments just can't be left lying there.

@10:02 - I realize that Hillary Clinton supporters are generally not the brightest bulbs in the box but, heavenly days! Do you think that the POTUS can just pull some codes out of his pocket and launch nuclear weapons??? The ONLY thing those codes DO is allow the person to provide absolute proof of his identity/authority to order certain military actions. They don't "launch" anything!! As for Trump's "alienations", it looks to me like he's only alienated a few people that NEED to be alienated. I'd much rather have a president who is not afraid to tell our enemies that we will not tolerate them crossing the line than to have one like Barack Obama (or Hillary Clinton) who lets them do whatever they want, whenever they want, where ever they want with absolutely no fear of retaliation. Case in point: Iraq's constant harassment of ships in international waters; China building an islands in the South China Sea.

O.k., I can agree with that to an extent. But Hillary shouldn't be judged on Bill's sexual escapades. Now if there's evidence of her stepping outside of her marriage to Bill, after the fact can anyone blame her?

Second, our marital institutions in this country and outdated. People are now way more in-tune with their sexuality and what kind of relationships work for them. Gay, straight, bi-sexual, asexual, monogamous, polyamorous, polygamous, heterosexual, metrosexual.

And if you are a so-called christian conservative, how in the hell does Donald Trump get a pass in your book, when he doesn't even have a home church, been married 4 times, has kids from 3 different marriages. How does that fit in with good wholesome family values?

Typically, people are going to have sex. Can we be mad at them for pursuing their natural inhibitions? No! But we hold our elected officials to these super standards in regards to judging character. When all we should be focused on is their level of intelligence, and whether or not, they can do the job and deliver results.

Sick and tired of the double standards and hypocrisy from politicians and their surrogates/advocates.

1:32 and her previous postings here, reveal many personal insecurities.

Anonymous said...

Why would any of us care who has sex with whom? And if Tony Yarber's wife puts up with him spreading himself around, why would I care one way or the other. If this City and this Country were prosperous and striving, I wouldn't care if the President, Congress, Governors, and Mayors all got into a pile and had sex with each other. If Mrs. Bracey was fired for not continuing an affair with the Mayor, yes, that is bad. However, when you're having an affair with your boss, that's the risk you take.

Anonymous said...

Why do I care? Because I am sick and tired of Yarber using the City of Jackson as his personal ATM machine - for cash, or for women. If he hired Bracey because of sex, then that cost the taxpayers money. If he hired her because of her competence and ability to do the job, but fired her because of sex that not only cost the taxpayers money, but is also very, very illegal, according to federal EEOC laws.

If he is traveling around the country raising 'campaign contributions' (although unreported) from engineering firms that want in on his supposed infrastructure program, that is not only costing the city money (for his and staff's travel and stripper experiences) but also for their not handling their other duties. And when it got around to awarding these engineering contracts, the question is 'who got them, and what did it cost extra'? Remember K. Powell's having to adjust the scoring on a response to the RFP at the treatment plant? Had to get it so that Tony's boys would be found to be the lowest and therefore awarded the contract. That process has been going on since day one of the Yarber administration. And that is why I care; if you choose not to that's fine with me.

When and how can we call the feds in on this crap? Certainly this warrants an investigation. Yes, we know they'll cry "it's racist", but come on...

AT 12:16. You mentioned this: "And if you are a so-called christian conservative, how in the hell does Donald Trump get a pass in your book, when he doesn't even have a home church, been married 4 times, has kids from 3 different marriages. How does that fit in with good wholesome family values?"

We voted Bill Clinton and Obama in, well someone voted them in.... AND THEY WERE "good men with wholesome family values"..... So, uuummm, maybe it's time we give someone else a shot at being President. Everybody deserves an equal chance, isn't that what some people preach? Give Trump a chance to be "as good as Clinton and Obama". Fair is fair right??

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).


Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.


In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease.
