*Chicago’s former top-cop Eddie Johnson has been accused of sexual assault and harassment in a new lawsuit.

The plaintiff, Cynthia Donald, said Johnson told her “Now you know you belong to me,” after a forced sex act on her at CPD Headquaters in the summer of 2016.

Donald was Johnson’s personal driver when he was on the job and she has reportedly been a Chicago cop for 14 years.

She says in the 33-page lawsuit filed on Thursday that Johnson forced her to engage in sex acts to keep her job.

“After the first time he sexually assaulted me in his office at CPD headquarters he told me that I belonged to him,” Donald told a news conference Thursday, according to Fox 32 Chicago.

She also alleges Johson texted her nude photos of himself.

We previously reported, Mayor Lori Lightfoot fired Johnson last December for allegedly lying about falling asleep in his car after having a few drinks during a dinner date in October.

Johnson was found asleep behind the wheel of his car on October 17 at 12:30am after another motorist called 911.

When an officer approached him, he blamed his drowsiness on a mix-up with medication he was taking and noted that he had a “few” drinks at dinner.

At a press conference, Mayor Lightfoot accused Johnson of deliberately “misleading” her, the city and the police department about what really went down that night.

The lawsuit reportedly alleges that Johnson contacted Donald on that fateful night and demanded that she meet him for drinks.

After the incident, Lightfoot allegedly told Johnson to demote Donald, CBS 2 Chicago reported.

“Mayor Lightfoot emphatically denies, and common sense dictates, that Eddie Johnson ever told the Mayor about allegations of abuse or harassment of Cynthia Donald by Eddie Johnson. Ms. Donald’s lawyers never claimed otherwise,” the city’s Law Department said in response.

Johnson also denies lawsuit’s allegations. 

“Her claims are not only patently false, they are egregiously dehumanizing towards those who have truly suffered in the workplace,” he said in a statement. “I pray for Ms. Donald’s well-being and look forward to the opportunity where the facts can be presented.”

“He made some of my business ventures go down, so I’m suing him now. I’m filing a lawsuit against him now,” he said in an interview for VLADTV released on Thursday, December 3. He claimed, “He stopped me of Instagram and he didn’t put me back on Instagram. And it’s affecting my business.”

Boosie noted that there are plenty of people who have been banned from the Instagram platform who have done way worse things than him, but those accounts were resorted.

“So you can give other 2 million people their Instagram back for derogatory things they did,” he said. “This is discrimination,” he went on accusing. “Something is wrong. Somebody must be mad cuz I say their name wrong and they’re trying to chastise me.”

*The trial for Eric Holder, the alleged killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been delayed for at least 90 days due to COVID-19 concerns, according to New York Daily News.

“I really don’t how we can realistically expect to see this case go to trial anytime in the next 90 days or more,” the report quotes Judge Robert J. Perry as saying. “Mr. Holder, I don’t know what to tell you except that the court system and this county are plagued by a sickness that we call the COVID virus, and the court system has been very much impacted. You have the right to a speedy trial. What counsel is suggesting is that we have you come back on the 21st of January and see where we are and try to have a trial within 30 days of the 21st, but you’ve heard my comments, I don’t think that’s going to happen.”

The judge confirmed that Holder is being held in isolation, UPROXX reprots. 

We previously reported, Holder, 29, is accused of fatally shooting the beloved rap star outside his clothing store in Los Angeles in 2019.

According to TMZ, Holder became enraged when Nipsey talked back to him after he fired off two shots that hit the L.A. native.

Here’s more from the outlet:

Sources at the scene of Nipsey’s murder tell us … after Eric Holder allegedly shot Nipsey twice and the rapper fell to the ground, Nipsey raised his head and said something to the effect of, “You shot me, you got me, I’m good.”

We’re told Holder — who had already started to walk away — turned around and walked back in Nipsey’s direction when he realized the rapper was still alive. That’s when Holder fired additional shots at Nipsey … those bullets, eyewitnesses believe, that killed him.

At the time of his death, Nipsey Hussle was 33 was working on several civic development projects to renew his Los Angeles neighborhood. For this reason, Holder claims was paid to kill Nipsey, according to unconfirmed reports. 

As noted by RollingOut: This claim has been published by media outlets, Lipstick Alley, Hip-hop Wired, Daily Motion and others, based on unconfirmed sources from an Instagram post. According to these sources, Holder has stated that he was propositioned by someone in the Los Angeles Police Department to assassinate Nipsey Hussle. This alleged proposition was that Holder would receive $75,000 and would not be charged.

Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s Republican voting system implementation manager

*A top election official with the Georgia Secretary of State’s Office on Tuesday called on President Donald Trump to condemn and “stop inspiring”recent threats of violence as the state finishes a second recount of the presidential election.

Gabriel Sterling, Georgia’s Republican voting system implementation manager, has gone viral for yelling at President Trump to stop the recount charade in his state, and calling on Senators David Perdue and Kelly Loeffler (currently in a runoff election) to step up and denounce death threats that have been delivered to election workers.

“It has to stop. Mr. President, you have not condemned these actions or this language. Senators, you have not condemned this language or these actions. This has to stop. We need you to step up. And if you’re going to take a position of leadership, show some,” Sterling said during a press conference Tuesday.

He cited as an example a 20-year-old tech employee in Gwinnett County who received death threats and was made the subject of a noose image disseminated online that read he should be “hung for treason.”

“All of you who have not said a damn word are complicit in this!” Sterling said.
