Madeira Beach City Commissioner Nancy Oakley quit after the Florida Commission on Ethics issued a report that claimed she was "exhibiting inappropriate behavior" during a fishing tournament in 2012 when she allegedly licked a city manager's face.
She resigned from her position and still claims that she is innocent. The Tampa Bay Times reported the board of commissions accepted Oakley's resignation on Wednesday night. Nancy Oakley, who served as the Madeira Beach City Commissioner from 2007 to 2019, submitted her letter of resignation on Tuesday.
Three other men have also accused Oakley of licking them against their will.
The allegations stem from a February 2017 complaint in which former Madeira Beach City Manager Shane Crawford said Oakley made "unwanted sexual advances" toward him and Dave Marsicano, then-director of the city's public works department and the city marina, NBC reported. Former mayor Travis Palladeno said he saw Oakley say at the event: "You need to get that fucking b [itch] out of here", referring to McGrady.
Oakley told investigators that she spotted Crawford with Cheryl McGrady, whom he later married.
Oakley survived a recall effort in 2018 but did not run for re-election to her seat.
According to the Miami Herald, Oakley resigned to avoid being fired.
'The act of licking a person on the face and neck is too unusual to be contrived by multiple witnesses and multiple victims, ' administrative law judge Robert S. Cohen wrote in his final report on the incident.
The Florida Commission on Ethics fined Oakley $5,000 in January and called on Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis to issue a public reprimand of her alleged actions.
