Former assistant sues Yarber for sexual harassment

Former Jackson employee Kimberly Bracey sued Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber in U.S. District Court today for sexual harassment.  The complaint also names the city of Jackson and several John Does as defendants. The complaint is posted below and is um, rather salacious in nature.  The case is assigned to U.S. District Judge Daniel Jordan, III.  Mrs. Bracey is represented by the law firm of Watson & Norris. Today is going to be a wild one for the Jackson media.

Louis Watson will take no prisoners. Nor will he take a weak case. The "Sex Preacher" is going down. So to speak.

Salacious? Based on the oral sex reference? Salacious is more clinical than what is detailed in this complaint.

Oops, almost forgot. Yarber is done.

Is the preacher going to pray away this allegation like his mortgage?

Looks like the Jackson Zoo story just got bigger as it involves many more species of animals.

Wonder if we'll have a community outreach town hall meeting with the churches and rest of the community on sexual harrasment? Jackson is burning right before your eyes and the sad part is-is that it will affect the state as a whole.

Hotlanta, NOLA, Skrip clubs? Man he sounds like a pimp not a mayor.

Tony obviously didn't attend any of Bill Clinton's secret Foundation workshops detailing how to pull off this garbage and get away with it. Guess we now know why the Mayor has been so reluctant to include those fundraisers in his campaign finance reports. And how about that Mitzi Bickers!

So is this what they mean City scandals by "straight piping"?

Another story involving Kimberly Bracey.

I want to be invited to the next party Mitzi Bickers throws.

Kingfish: Who would take over if TY has to resign or is forced out? Would that person finish out his term or would there be a special election? If so, curious as to how this might affect next year's general election.

Well, it is an election year and seems to me like someone (possibly in the Lumumba camp) found an insider who was ready to do some squealing for a nice fat foreseeable settlement.

Anonymous said...

@1:27. Not KF here, but to answer your question - look at what happened when Daddy Lubumba died. President of council becomes acting Mayor; council calls for special election.

But this late in term I don't expect TY resignation. This lawsuit is far from his legal problems. He should be more worried about fibbies activities and some of these fund raiser attendees.

Geez. No wonder the Water Department can't send out bills with all of these shenanigans going on at City Hall.

Kim campaigned on the clock often...I know. She called my office in doing so.
She was fired for using her position as a self-serving stepping stone. Period.
If she didn't like any advances towards her, she should have sued earlier!
The proper response is not to enter into a long-standing sexual relationship
and then cry foul when you get fired.

She is not a victim, she was a willing participant.

I'm wondering how much of this drama Keisha Powell was involved in? Anything to do with her leaving?

Bracey was married in 2013, separated and boning the mayor by 2014. Sounds like a marriage made in heaven. But she did what she needed to do to put food on the table, so there's that.

I really hope this is the end of Yarber. Wonder what the topic of his sermon will be this week? Something about "don't believe the devil, he tries to twist everything" or some such nonsense.

According to an article in the National Review, Bickers was the one they hired for Cochran's "get out the black voter" campaign that allowed him to win re-election. She's from Atlanta, is pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church, past chair of the Atlanta school board, and openly gay(bet she enjoyed the strippers too). Quite a resume!!

You old timers will remember Flip Wilson and his famous " The Church of What's Happnin Now, Brutha". Appears that Mayor Tony sat on the front row. He should have done like Obama and not listened to the sermons. If Da Mare had any hope at all in the next election, it is gone now. Good riddance to bad rubbish.

TY should take his scnittzengruber and slither on out of town.

Come on people, read the other names in the Complaint. The other "participants". Do you actually believe that only Yarber would be doing it? You've got Marshand Crisler, not to mention a Judge's son. Gez, talk about a good time being had by all and on the taxpayer's dime.

It certainly didn't take very long (hello 1:53 p.m.) for the "whore itizing" to begin. Wasn't anyone else's fault - it was the woman's fault. Yea.....right.

Anonymous said...

First of all, I see the actions of the participants in the lawsuit as being cultural. They've always been that way, and they always will be that way. I'm not condoning them, and I'm not saying there wasn't harm done. I'm just stating my opinion based on observations from living in the south for many decades.

On a related issue: I hope the person who wrote (and worst of all, submitted) that complaint is embarrassed! It is awful! It is rife with grammatical and spelling errors. Do "professionals" (or anyone, for that matter) read what they've written anymore?

PittPanther said...

Wait a minute! According to the C-L, Yarber officiated Bracey's wedding! Yarber was a friend of her husband's...

He does that to his friend, imagine what he'll do to people he doesn't know or care about.

Lumumba used to say "if you don't love the people, you will betray the people." Yarber appears to love no one but himself. Wife? Nope. Friends? Nope. Employees? Nope. City of Jackson? Nope.

I'm thoroughly disgusted.

Welp, its official

The next Jackson Mayor will either be Melvin Priester or Antar Lumumba

Melvin is Harvard educated, spent time on the Jackson city council, well respected by the surrounding suburbanites, but does not warm to kindly to the poor folks in Jackson.

Antar has the "ethnic" name, is a lawyer, speaks with the vigor like his father, but by no means is the same kind of activists for the people like his father. All in all, he wants to become mayor so he will have the experience under his feet to run for Bennie's congressional seat.

But it's safe to say, this is officially a wrap for Tony, he had his chance and messed it up.

Anonymous said...

As I said, an election year, Lumumba and Priester's camps are already at it. As for 2:25 and 2:29, give me a break - the activity is cultural and Lumumba is now a great philosopher! You've got to be kidding me.

Please let Jackson declare bankruptcy and an administrator have to be appointed. Then it won't matter who the mayor and city council are because they will have no power.

1:58. Catch up. She was named by the McDs and their media folks and tried to tie her to radio ads - due to corporate names. Was proven to be totally different group - local folks who made up a LLC name that matched hers. Local politico ad.itted to making the ads and paying for them. Mitzi was too busy find g strippers in body paint to engage in MS Senate campaign.

When will we be rid of this thoroughly corrupt, dissolute, incompetent and ineffective ass TY? Have we got to wait until next summer while the City's problems continue to mount without solutions?

If Jackson Public Works was laying as much pipe as the mayor the water problems would be fixed in no time.

Tony needs to defend himself like Bill Clinton did.
"I did not have sex with that women". "Exactly, what is your definition of sex?" Parahased:Is a blow job sex?

Will the City have to pay for a defense for Tony?

Anonymous said...

I will say this:

If you're going down over sexual harassment, you might as well go down over "banging the entire office staff six ways to Sunday/strippers in body paint" sexual harassment, as opposed to "off-color remarks" sexual harassment.

Way to not half-ass it, Tony.

Okay, I read the document but I can't keep up. Plaintiff willing had a sexual relationship with the mayor but left husband to move in with another person who was also having a sexual relationship with mayor. Now plaintiff has moved back in with hubby and is sueing? I do not know the protocol here, when you willingly engage in a relationship with a married politician, you can sue them after you are done? I am not sure what Miss Manners has to say about this but the fact that the mayor is also having any affair with another co-worker and subordinate would have woken me up. Hellooooo, if he is an A-hole with one person than most likely he will be an A-hole with you. Where are their mothers? Did they not give them advice about this? How can one sue someone after willingly partaking in an affairs and then claim sexual harassment? The sexual harassment part should have come first. How many voted this idiot into office for mayor of a major southern city? I hope his wife gives an interview on this.

4:56 -- You can't keep up with the part where she says, "I stopped the affair, but later he told me I had to keep having sex with him"?

Are you just being obtuse for laughs, or do you really think that once you have sex with someone, you're obliged to keep having sex with them on demand forever?

Anonymous said...

Didn't Tony Yarber admit infidelity with his former school secretary when campaigning - and his wife had forgiven him ??? Sound like more of the same.

In Defense Of Da Mayor.. said...

In real stressful situations, it ain't that easy to get a boner. Women won't understand this and neither will the Tom Head crowd. But, seriously, when you're conflicted with all kinda mental anquish, guilt, doubt, fear and compromise, you just ain't gonna get the noodle to doodle, try and pray as you might.

So, in defense of the Mayor, I submit it was highly unlikely that he performed at the level suggested. He bein' frame.

The craziest thing to me from the CL story was she was being paid $50k a year for her job as the mayor's assistant. Not bad.

None of you commentators are dealing the main fact. TY is a sex addict. Many of us in the black community knew this and did not vote for him. Most of you in the white community did not bother to check him out. If you had you would have found out he had these problems at the school at which he was principal.The fault lies some what with you but mostly on those so called black "leaders" who brought TY to you and said he was the one. They knew he was a sex addict. They knew he was unfit to be mayor. But they sold him to you anyway! They hoped he would give them contracts and did not care about what happened to Jackson. Now you see what you have.

Anonymous said...

There's really no such thing as a 'sex addict'. There is such a thing, though, as horny and out of control. The man has no moral compass, no boundaries, no fences. What's the difference in Yarber's and Bill Clinton's behavior? Both were given passes by the entire Democrat Neighborhood.

Anonymous said...

I'm enjoying all the moral outrage by those who are going to vote for a man who is married to someone young enough to be his daughter. And, apparently there will be no moral outrage when he trades her in for an even younger model once the plastic surgery can't hide body age.

Jackson- The decay continues from the inside as well as the outside.

I wondered how long it would take someone to blame the few white people left in Jackson for the Mayor's behavior. Thank you 11:58 for coming through. I wouldn't care how many people he was sleeping with if the City could mail a water bill and fill potholes.

I guess I'll have to get myself happy about living in the Kush District.

Apparently you're not very good at math. If the votes of white NE Jackson put Yarber over the top because many of you in the black community "did not vote for him", then they would have elected a white mayor. Since the voting power of NE Jackson is greatly diminished due to the demographic makeup of the city, the black vote will always determine who becomes mayor. Nice try blaming our problems on whitey. Thanks for playing.

Sure, it is the white people's fault that Yarber can't keep it in his pants.

Most men have a sexual appetite... and most of them would probably like more than they get. However, most will work it out with their spouse or maintain a socially, or self-imposed, level of discipline to control.

I tend to agree with 4AM.

Anonymous said...

You know, we have a daily paper, several TV stations, several radio stations, a Free Press, a Northside Paper, and probably even more, plus the blogs, why are the voters to be blamed and called money hungry when they were not informed of the Mayor's penchant for infidelity, to say the least. I am willing to listen to the replies from the Mayor and whatever else might come out, but unfortunately, the whole sorry tale rings true. His best bet is to go to the same place Tiger Woods went and seek treatment. Still, he will not be elected again.

Are you honestly suprised???? Most of not all men in power have affairs. Especially when the attention their conventions, fund raisers, conferences. I have witnessed, made me question the man that I was dating. It's nothing brand new. Taxpayers dollars being funded for sexcapades and we wonder why real issues of citizens are not dealt with. It's all a ga me and disgrace. It's the world we live in. Stay tuned

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.
