(TargetLiberty.org) – In a recent legal development, Scott Lassiter, a former council member from North Carolina, has initiated a lawsuit against North Carolina House Speaker Tim Moore, seeking a significant sum of $200,000 in damages. The crux of Lassiter’s claim revolves around allegations that Moore engaged in an extramarital affair with Lassiter’s wife, Jamie Liles Lassiter, ultimately leading to the disintegration of their once-cherished marriage.
Scott Lassiter, currently employed as an assistant principal at Connections Academy Middle School in Wake County, served on the Apex Town Council from 2011 to 2015, thus crossing paths with Tim Moore in the political landscape. It is worth noting that both Scott and Jamie Lassiter are members of the North Carolina Republican Party and had reportedly made campaign donations to Moore in the past.
Lassiter’s lawsuit against Moore asserts that the House Speaker flagrantly abused his position of power, using it as a tool to “entice” Jamie Lassiter into engaging in an illicit relationship. The affair, according to Lassiter, endured for an extensive period of more than three years, commencing in 2019 and culminating in 2023. The consequence of this alleged infidelity was the subsequent separation of Scott and Jamie Lassiter in January of the present year.
An intriguing facet of Lassiter’s claims is the assertion that Jamie Lassiter adamantly refused to sever ties with Moore despite the dissolution of her marriage. It is further alleged that Moore cunningly employed his influential status to coerce Jamie Lassiter into participating in a series of degrading acts, including engaging in group sex, all to satiate his own sexual appetites.
Adding another layer to this intricate web of allegations is the suggestion that Jamie Lassiter harbored the belief that her affair with Moore would yield favorable treatment for the North Carolina Conference of Clerks of Superior Court, an institution where she serves as the executive director. It is unclear whether there were any tangible benefits or consequences stemming from this belief, but it serves to underscore the complex nature of the situation.
As the legal battle unfolds, all parties involved will be subject to a thorough examination of the evidence presented. The outcome of this lawsuit will undoubtedly have far-reaching implications, not only for the individuals directly involved but also for the perception of ethics and integrity within the North Carolina political landscape.
