NJ borough officials discussed quieting ‘n*gger’ employees by giving them ‘bucket of fried chicken’: lawsuit

Published

on

The New Jersey borough of Red Bank this week got slapped with a racial discrimination lawsuit filed by a former parks and recreations director who claims that racist borough officials created a hostile work environment for her and other black employees.

APP.com reports that former Red Bank Parks and Recreation Director Memone Crystian is claiming in her lawsuit that former borough administrator Stanley J. Sickels once told a room full of people at the local fire house that he had just gotten through having a meeting with “the n*ggers” who worked at the Department of Public Works.

The suit also claims that Sickels and former borough council president Arthur Murphy III once joked to another council member that someone should give Crystian “a bucket of fried chicken” to “make her happy.”

Crystian claims that Sickels opposed her hiring back in 2010, and alleges that he “sought to reduce her negotiated salary; changed the borough’s policy to prevent Crystian from using accrued flextime during a medical leave, and sought to deny her admission into the state’s pension system for public employees,” according to APP.com.

She also claims that her successors as parks and recreation directors, who have been white, have not been subject to such restrictions.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is considering firing Mick Mulvaney, his acting White House chief of staff and director of the Office of Management and Budget, The Atlantic reported Friday.

"The fumble could not have been more poorly timed: According to multiple current and former White House officials, many of whom spoke on the condition of anonymity to relay private conversations, Trump has been steadily souring on Mulvaney for weeks."

Michael Moore predicts Mick Mulvaney will get into Heaven after confessing Trump’s quid pro quo

Published

Academy Award-winning filmmaker Michael Moore predicted acting White House Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney will ascend to Heaven in the afterlife during a Friday interview on MSNBC's "The Beat" with Ari Melber.

The host played a clip of Mulvaney admitting Trump's quid pro quo while seeking foreign election assistance from Ukraine.

"This man obviously is going to be admitted into Heaven," Moore said. "You know, he told the truth."

"If there was a movie version of this, somebody stuck him with a needle just before he walked out onto the stage there, a truth serum needle, and he just went on and on saying, 'Yeah, that’s what we do. Yeah, of course.' Essentially admitting there is a quid pro quo. In fact, there are many quid pro quos."
