League City's City Manager Suspended for Using the N-Word in LSU-Alabama Discussion

Rich Oller, the acting city manager of League City, has been suspended for a week following a long closed-door council session investigating his use of the N-word at City Hall. reports that Oller was discussing the previous night's BCS title game between LSU & Alabama last month with two city employees when he dropped the N-bomb in what was no doubt an astute analysis of the game.

An anonymous e-mail tipped off city council to the incident, and they investigated.

"Use of the N-word in a city facility, it's just not acceptable by our policies and just common decency," Councilman Andy Mann told the Galveston County Daily News.

The day before the council hearing, a city spokesperson told reporters Oller ""did not intentionally say anything racist," which we guess means he was just going gangsta and no one else was street enough to understand. Oller himself is not talking to reporters about the incident.

It's the latest in a long string of embarrassing incidents for League City government, and good luck to whoever fills the city manager job.
