One of Cincinnati City Council’s self-proclaimed “Gang of Five” was hit with a defamation lawsuit Friday for calling an ex-top police official a “racist” in a text.
The former second-in-command at the Cincinnati Police Department, Assistant Chief David Bailey, sued Tamaya Dennard in Hamilton County Common Pleas Court, a copy of the suit shows.
She was sued individually and in her capacity as a member of Cincinnati City Council.
The suit was filed so fast, just one day after the text messages were released, because there is a one-year statute of limitation for defamation suits.
Dennard sent the text to Councilman Chris Seelbach a year ago Friday, according to a copy of council’s secret texts released Thursday as part of a lawsuit settlement.
“Just saw your tweet,” she texted Seelbach March 8, 2018. “Not trying to undermine your friendship, but Bailey is a racist and as been for some time.”
