The Mayor responds

Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber issued the following statement:


Statement from City of Jackson Regarding Lawsuit

The City of Jackson has been made aware of a vicious and scandalous lawsuit filed by a former disgruntled employee, Kimberly Y. Vaunterice Bracey.  Although the City has not been served with a copy of the complaint and summons, Mayor Tony T. Yarber and the City of Jackson stand ready to vigorously defend against each and every frivolous allegation made by Kimberly Y. Vaunterice Bracey.  When appropriate, the City of Jackson, Mayor Tony T. Yarber, and City personnel will seek all available remedies against Mrs. Bracey and possibly others, for this egregious character assassination and political ploy.

In all fairness, Watson & Norris is notorious for taking B.S. cases with the sole intent on settling them fast.

Haaaaa! Louis Watson doesn't take frivolous cases. Don't be foolish like the former mayor of Detroit, Kwame Kilpatrick. Quit while you're ahead. Resign and let the City move on.

Hahahaha! Too damn funny! So predictable and scripted.

Tony, do everyone a favor and resign.

Save your family from additional pain and disgrace.

This is what you say when you have no real defense. Mayor wants to say more but lawyer is telling him not to dig the hole deeper because lying will only make it worse.

She is certainly not an innocent victim but that doesn't matter in a case like this.

TY better try the Bill Clinton defense and hope his home boys and congregation will stand behind him like Clinton's did. Don't hold your breath Tony.

In other words, Yarber wants the taxpayers to at least partially foot the bill for his defense.

First of all, they will seek no such remedies against her unless they prove that this was all of a ruthless figment of her imagination. Given the fact that Louis Watson and Nick Norris took this means that that is probably not the case. Second, whoever writes his press releases needs a lesson in the English language. I get what they mean, but it is written poorly: "Mayor Tony T. Yarber and the City of Jackson stand ready to vigorously defend each and every frivolous allegation made by Kimberly Y. Vaunterice Bracey." Again, I know what they mean, but what they said was that they would defend her allegations, meaning they would support them. The ruling junta needs to be overthrown.

Tony Yarber needs psychiatric help and a spiritual healing. This is a serious matter, and it needs to be addressed before he does further damage to other women, his family, the City, and himself.

Stop denying there is a problem and get treatment.

Hmmm. Sounds like the mess from Vicksburg a few years ago. Stay tune criminal charges will be forth coming....

Tony Yarber is a man of God, so I take him at his word. Wait for the facts folks!!!

Many of us have long heard these stories but chose to ignore them. Kim Bracey came forward, and I'm sure more will follow. It will be like the Bill Cosbsy saga--Jackson style. Let's see if 10 women come forward...he has been Mayor for just 2 yrs.

Yarber needs to shut up and pay up to prevent this mess from snowballing.

Settle it before paying crazy legal fees and then electing to settle. We all know this will not go to trial.

I understand that Kim Bracey is willing to submit to a polygraph examination and wants Yarber and Bickers to do the same to determine who is lying. 🤔

No TY , the city Of Jackson is not part of this , you should be responsible for your own mess . What were you and Marsahand doing in the presence of naked women on tax payer's dime ? . The Council should stand up make you bow tying idiots pay for your own defence . We have pot holes , water bills, and furloughs to worry about . This is not first of allegations against you by the way . Typical of your type , can't pay your rent , but out partying on saturday nights . Hope the state auditor will do us tax payers of jackson a favor before we end up like Kwame Kilpatrick's Detroit

The Mayor and his cronies might want to start taking their wives with them on their alleged trysts to prevent these so-called frivolous lies. Did you say strippers with paint on, Call me, I wanna go!

Easy fix Tony, Take a Poly! It is either frivolous or you are a sexual deviant.

Anonymous said...

I am a resident of Jackson. Rather than waste time and incur the expense of litigation, I will pay for the polygraphs of Bracey, Yarber, and Bickers. If Yarber passes, we can all go home. If he fails, the City can settle without having to pay a bundle of legal expenses.

Well at least we know somebody's pot holes are getting filled.....wait.....what?

What an epic failure--morally and spiritually! God will not be mocked, Minister Tony Yarber. You have to keep lying to cover the earlier one. This is only going to get worse for you and your friends if you continue to lie. Take the advice of someone who knows, and shut it down! You should know that confession is good for the soul!

I'm outraged that I wasn't invited to these parties. . I could have helped pray the body paint away!

What's with all of this polygraph stuff?? Yea, I'll take one as soon as I'm done playing my Atari. Polygraphs haven't been admissible in court since Jackson had a white mayor.

Anonymous said...

If he or the other city employees went on those out of town excursions and used city funds (credit cards or reimbursements) then it falls into a whole new category.

11:31, that's funny, wish I had come up with that one! :)

Nobody mentioned court, 2:28. Polygraphs are voluntarily taken all the time. The results are not admissible, but are excellent indicators from which to proceed. Or stop.

We need some pictures of these womens.

There is a financial paper trail, but it seems to indicate that the expenses of the out-of-town events were paid for by Madam Mitzi Bickers.

Kim Bracey is honorable and compassionate as well as her husband Santore. They both, as well as her mother, came in to my family and helped us care for my parents in their final months. I have no reason not to believe Ms Bracey's allegations. As for Yarber.......he needs to pack a bag and take Stoke with him. Jackson would be a better place.

Anonymous said...

Kim Bracey may be compassionate, but a married woman sleeping with a married man while knowing that he's also sleeping with strippers and whoever else doesn't make anyone "honorable".

Apparently this has all been going on for some time now and everyone knew about it. Any way to pull the records on how many times we've had to pay when the Preacher's car has been "vandalized" over the last few years with windows broken out, etc.? I hear his ladies have tempers.

Didn't Tony Yarber officiate her wedding? I smell a scandal brewing.

Anonymous said...

I was a supporter and fan on Tony Yarber when he was on the City Council. He was concerned, committed and available. He seemed to understand the meaning of being a public servant. When he allowed Mitzi Bickers to play a role in his campaign, his focus changed. Bickers knew Yarber's weaknesses (sex and money), and she took advantage of this. She took Yarber to a mountain and showed him a world in which he could fully indulge if he would bow down and follow her...and Ben Carson thinks Hillary is the devil.

My intelligence sources confirmed Yarber's sexual antics long ago, but none of the other women were willing to sue Yarber and other predators in his administration. I have been informed that Another suit will be filed shortly by another "disgruntled former city employee". I believe that the Bill Cosby effect will kick in and more victims and witnesses will come forward.

Tony Yarber should resign immediately and stop this drama before it becomes more costly to everyone mentioned in Kim Bracey's lawsuit.

And what's with City's Press Release listing Mrs. Bracey's full name? A Jedi Mind- trick to intimidate her?!

As one of the bloggers would say, "Baby Boy, the gig is over. Go home."

8:37 you have proof of your claim? Otherwise its just hearsay.

Isn't it amazing how ALL the television stations have refrained from running around and sticking microphones and pointing cameras at all those involved???? Seems they didn't have the problem w/Sen. Cochran's debacle. They interview everyone and anyone they could.
Now I wonder what could be the difference? Anyone?

But who kilt da Mayor? That question was never answered.
Seems like Yarbet had been more on top of things than we thought.

And this why we can't have nice things.

This women knows she was a willing participant in this relationship. She got off on it. She'd been sleeping with Tony Yarber willingly for over a year. Before she separated from her husband. No good will come to her until she tells the TRUTH.

Anonymous said...

10:49, isn't Yarber married also? Wasn't Yarber a willing participant? Didn't Yarber get off on it? Wasn't Yarber sleeping with her for over a year before she separated from her husband?
Do you thing there will be a load of good following Yarber around?

Anonymous said...

Mr. Yarber, please do NOT rely on legal advice from the City Attorney's Office! If you do, it is likely to cost you more than your reputation (which has long been destroyed). Hire someone who will give you an honest, impartial assessment of this case against you. Better yet, I will give you that advice without charging a fee, because the fee may cloud my judgment a little.

Your term as Mayor is about to come to a nasty conclusion, and you should be a friend to Monica, Gus, Jackie, Jason, Sheena, Marshand and others and not cause them the public embarrassment you have brought to your family, your church, and this city.

Resign immediately and seek medical/psychological help. People love you and will forgive you after you come clean and get clean. Don't let this mess become your legacy. You will loose a protracted legal battle and cost the City dearly. Stop fighting this so we can start the healing process.

Anonymous said...

11:30 a.m., of course he was! He's just as guilty as she is. I think she should just tell the truth about the relationship and stop with the whole "I was forced." She enjoyed every inch of him in her mouth. She would still have a case, even with the truth.

Labor Law 103 said...

'The women know she was a willing participant'.

What you dolts don't know about sexual harassment laws is this: Even where there is mutual consent for a relationship, once it is ended, it is still illegal harassment for one party to the prior relationship to continue pressing the other party for sexual favors or to continue making advances and engaging in unlawful behavior or to otherwise discriminate against or affect the employment of the other.

So, just because the tunnel was open to traffic at one time, once the tunnel was barricaded, passage was thereafter forbidden and attempts to run around the barricade were against the law.

Mississippi is full of faux Christians, so he fives a rats arsh about Tony being a pastor.

So many of these so-called pastors get the calling because all they see is green, not doing the will of Jesus!

They slap a church in Jackson and drive up the cost of services and are burden on the taxpayers and no one has the balls to call them out in the media for the burden they are on the city! Because the reporters don't want to come across as non-christians.

Well today is the day I call'em out. Many of them claim they are called, but many are full of sh*t too. Be a member of the flock and let someone who is meant to lead the flock handle the reigns. The minute there's a disagreement in the church, or one of the pastors have ran through all the women in the parish, they split to form another church.

Time to have an honest conversation about all these fake a** pastors that are rippin' off many of the sheep. A bunch of damn snake oil salesmen and pyramid schemers.

Start making them pay taxes, they will drop like flies from the pastoring scheme.

I just saw Yarber on a WJTV segment. He said he can't wait to have his day in court. 😂😂😂
Everyone needs to check out Othor Cain Live on Facebook. It aired 12:30. Start viewing around 8 mins for a treat!

It's over, Mr Mayor. Please stop lying.

Psychology Today Vol 16 said...

I'm beginning to question not only the IQ of the mayor, but his mental stability. He can't decide what he wants his face or clothing to look like, so he changes both with regularity. His behavior is erratic and his judgment calls are questionable. Now these sexual exploits surface and they have to have been going on since he was in high school. Is this the sign of some sort of psychological or behavioral deficiency?

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.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. 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. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
