- If you can’t lick ’em, quit. A Florida city commissioner has resigned amid allegations that she licked another city employee’s face and neck before groping him.
- Madeira Beach City Commissioner Nancy Oakley’s resignation comes two years after City Manager Shane Crawford accused her of running her tongue “up the side of his neck and face” before grabbing his crotch and butt, according to an ethics commission report. The report also claims Oakley threw a punch at an assistant who suggested her actions weren’t appropriate.
- Last month, the commission fined Oakley $5,000 for the incident, leading to her resignation this week. She maintains she’s innocent and plans to appeal the ethics commission’s ruling.
