Florida politician reportedly resigns following accusations she licked men's faces

Madeira Beach City Commissioner Nancy Oakley submitted her resignation after the Florida Commission on Ethics alleged she licked another city official's face and neck before groping him.

Upon election, she and another commissioner and the newly elected mayor suspended the city manager, who says they knew the ethics complaint against Oakley was pending. The city commission of Madeira Beach, Fla.

A former city official reportedly filed the ethics complaint against Oakley two years ago, saying she'd sexually harassed him by licking his face and groping him at a public event.

Four witnesses-including McGrady, public works and marina director David Marsicano and Old Salt president Thomas Verdensky-said they saw Oakley lick Crawford's neck and face.

A Florida politician has resigned her office because of her alleged "habit of licking men".

When then-city clerk Cheryl McGrady, whom Crawford later married, told Oakley that her conduct was inappropriate, the city commissioner allegedly called the woman a 'f***ing b****' and took a swing at her, but missed.

Crawford didn't report the incident at the time as he was afraid of getting fired, The Miami Herald previously noted. She was ordered to pay a $5,000 fine after an administrative law judge ruled against her and the ethics commission recommended that the governor censure her.

Since Oakley previously chose to not seek re-election, she would have vacated her seat anyway after serving out her current term ending in March.

In her letter announcing her resignation, Oakley again denied licking or touching Crawford and said she was stepping down to 'still the controversy'.
