More allegations have surfaced against an Oakland councilwoman who has already cost the city millions.
A former staffer is accusing City Councilwoman Desley Brooks of abuse.
Brooks made headlines after she was accused of shoving former Black Panther leader Elaine Brown, a case that forced the city to pay up.
Now, her former aide is taking legal action, filing a claim against her and the city that alleges she verbally and physically abused him.
Brooks spoke publicly on Tuesday about funding for job training centers and programs, as well as accountability.
“We have to hold all people accountable in this community, not just some…” Brooks said in a speech on Tuesday.
But her former aide, 33-year-old Sidney Wilson, claims Brooks routinely yelled at him and cursed at him. He also said he was a “controlled and abused servant, a go-fetch boy.”
