I doubt this will go over very well with pretty much anyone. This, of course, is the discrimination lawsuit filed against Vernon Jones. While he was granted partial summary judgement, the court proceeded with other aspects of the case, finding:
The evidence is that Jones began implementing his agenda to eliminate white managers as soon as he took office and that many high-ranking officials within DeKalb County, including Stogner, Jones’s Executive Assistant, Stone, the Director of Human Resources, Williams, an Assistant County Administrator, and Drew, the Director of the Parks Department, were actively participating and furthering the agenda. . . .
Plaintiffs offer evidence that Jones, Stone, and Drew each told Lowe that a plan was in place to discriminate against white DeKalb County managers. Lowe testified that Jones told him the white people in the Department needed to removed, and the whole department needed to be reorganized.
This evidence is sufficient for a reasonable jury to find that there was a widespread practice that is so permanent and well-settled as to constitute a custom, and that this practice was implemented and encouraged by Jones as CEO of DeKalb County.
And here we thought rumors of three ways and orgies would be the most exciting part of this campaign!
