The board ruled there is evidence that Moore made discriminatory comments about employees. Among the complaints, Moore is accused of remarking that a desk was "heavier than ten dead n---ers."

At the meeting, we spoke with Moore's supporters and the man running against him in next month's election, Stephen Schultz.

"I just couldn't sit down while our town was being paved over while there were reprehensible comments and actions coming out of our town hall and while the very nature of our town was changing," says Schultz.

"Right now, we are dealing with allegations," says Frank Disano, supporter of Jack Moore. "There is no proof of guilt in an allegation. Unfortunately we live in a society where you can say anything and people say, 'Oh yeah that's the truth.'"

Moore says the complaints are coming from disgruntled employees who oppose him.
