SC police chief says firing was because she's gay

Posted: Updated:

LATTA, S.C. (AP) - The police chief of the Dillon County town of Latta has been fired and she says it is because she is gay.

About 100 people attended a special town council meeting Thursday, hoping to be heard on the firing of Crystal Moore.

But Mayor Earl Bullard said the firing was not on the agenda. Bullard fired Moore on Tuesday and has refused to say why because it's a personnel matter.

Councilman Jarret Taylor says Moore was fired because she would not sign written reprimands before consulting her attorney.
