Kim Crawford, an African-American female who was employed with the National Republican Club of Capitol Hill for over 10 years, has filed a racial discrimination lawsuit against the club and its general manager, Stanley Lawson.
According to the Huffington Post, “Crawford claims that she ‘requested a raise and the request was denied’ at around July 1, 2010. At that point, she had not received a pay increase in eight years. By contrast, several Caucasian employees ‘had been given substantial raises within the past 3-4 years.'”
The complaint also alleges that “The National Republican Club and Lawson retaliated against [Crawford] by firing her on July 29, 2010, replacing her with a white male.”
