Kentucky Transportation Cabinet sued after state worker finds feces in chair

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – A state worker has sued the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet, alleging sex discrimination and claiming that someone defecated in her office and urinated on her chair.

Sandy Sizemore Jackson said janitors had to clean up feces from her office floor. And she said she began to “smell something funny” when she sat down to work one day in March 2015. When she stood up, her pants were wet. Her supervisor told her to throw the chair away and order another one.

Transportation Cabinet spokesman Ryan Watts said the lawsuit’s allegations pertain to a time when former Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear was in office.

While the cabinet was the only defendant named in the lawsuit, Jackson places most of the blame on Mark Hoskins, a Beshear appointee. Hoskins denied the allegations, calling Jackson “a troubled employee.”
