The former Chief of Staff of the Mayor of Vicksburg has filed a sexual harassment lawsuit today against mayor Paul Winfield.
Kenya Burks alleges that she and Winfield were engaged in a sexual relationship which she wanted to end.
At that point Burks says she was abruptly terminated when she fought off Winfield’s sexual advances.
Updated: During an interview Wednesday, Winfield denied Burks allegations, saying they were all untrue. Winfield says Burks has aligned herself with his political enemies, in an attempt to ruin his reputation.
