Georgia city upholds firing of manager accused of harassment



AMERICUS, Ga. (AP) — Leaders of a South Georgia city are upholding a decision to fire their city manager over allegations of sexual harassment and other inappropriate behavior. The city council of Americus rejected an appeal by former City Manager Charles Coney after a three-hour hearing. The council had fired Coney in February after a law firm investigated complaints by city employees.  Coney denied sexual harrassment claims against him and his attorney argued his race was a factor in his firing. Coney is Black, as are a majority of Americus council members. The former city manager did not speak during his own appeal hearing Thursday, which had been postponed because of the coronavirus outbreak.
