Ex-assistant to Jackson mayor alleges sexual harassment

A former executive assistant to Jackson Mayor Tony Yarber tells a story of sex, strippers and campaign parties in her sexual harassment suit filed against the mayor Thursday.

Kimberly Bracey alleges Yarber sexually harassed her and others and fostered a “sexual hostile work place” at City Hall.

“It’s just my hope that no one else has to go through this,” Bracey told The Clarion-Ledger. “Hopefully people start coming forward.”

Yarber did not return calls to his cell. An official city statement called the lawsuit “vicious and scandalous” and called Bracey a “former disgruntled employee.”
