In three separate documents Monday, the defendants in a sex scandal at Winder City Hall responded to the federal lawsuit filed several months ago by former accounts payable clerk Sue Fowler. The responses claim discussions of a sexual nature were consensual and that some officials were unaware of inappropriate workplace actions.
In her suit, Fowler claimed that she was laid off in February 2009 in retaliation for having complained a year earlier of sexual harassment by city finance director Leslie Ginn, whom she said had been exerting pressure on her to participate in activities of a sexual nature.
Fowler also claimed that the city’s internal investigation following her internal complaint was biased in Ginn’s favor, because even though she was found to have violated city policies, she was given minimal consequences. She said City Administrator Bob Beck showed favoritism toward Ginn due to his fondness for her.
See the Feb. 17 edition of the Barrow Journal for details regarding Bob Beck's and Leslie Ginn's responses to the sexual harassment lawsuit filed by former Winder employee Sue Fowler.
