Mayor Of Elberta Accused Of Using Racial Slur

Mayor Of Elberta Accused Of Using Racial Slur

Posted: Updated:
ELBERTA, Alabama -

In a  recently uploaded You Tube video, Elberta Mayor Marvin Williams is called a criminal, a racist and a hypocrite.

The subscriber who uploaded the video also claims audio of a person using the n-word is Mayor Williams.

The accusation comes just months after the mayor and town council fired police officer Ric Rouse for allegedly using racially offensive language while on duty.

We talked to Williams Tuesday about the You Tube video. Williams doesn't remember that recorded conversation.

"I haven't used a racial slur in any official capacity while in office," says Williams. "I'm not even sure that's me."

Williams thinks a group of angry or disgruntled former town employees is behind the video.

"It's sour grapes because they were fired or disciplined by me for not doing their job," says Williams.
