ATLANTA (AP) -- The former executive assistant to the chairman of the Georgia Republican Party has filed a federal lawsuit claiming race discrimination.<br />
Qiana Keith of Gainesville filed the lawsuit against the Georgia GOP on Tuesday, saying she was subjected to racial slurs and discrimination from co-workers because she is black. She said she was fired March 31 after complaining to her boss. She seeks unspecified damages and attorney fees as well as job reinstatement.<br />
The Georgia GOP's lawyer, Anne Lewis, said in a statement Wednesday that Keith was terminated for "consistently poor job performance" and that an internal investigation found no merit to her claims.<br />
The lawsuit was filed under the federal Civil Rights Act. In the lawsuit, Keith describes herself as a supporter of the Republican Party and an active volunteer.
