Circleville Firefighter Sues Department Over Alleged Sexual Harassment


A female firefighter is suing the Circleville Fire Department, claiming she is a longtime victim of sexual harassment, and has been subjected to equipment tampering, clothing destruction and gender-related slurs. Amie Morningstar says she's been required to meet tougher training and work standards than male counterparts and denied promotions because she's a woman. Morningstar says she's regularly called derogatory names by Fire Chief Marc Zingarelli. Circleville Law Director Gary Kenworthy declined comment.
