State GOP responds to racial discrimination suit

POSTED: August 19, 2014 11:41 p.m.

The Georgia Republican Party and its chairman, John Padgett, filed their response Tuesday in the racial discrimination suit filed by a Gainesville woman.

Qiana Keith, who formerly worked as Padgett’s executive assistant, filed a suit on July 9 in Atlanta, claiming co-workers used racial slurs and treated her differently because she is black.

The response denies all allegations of racial discrimination made by Keith in her complaint.

The defendants’ attorney Anne Lewis declined to comment further, saying it would be litigated in court. Lewis previously told The Times that no evidence of discrimination was discovered after an internal investigation.

Keith’s attorney Kim Worth could not be immediately reached for comment.
