OKMULGEE - A woman who claims to have been in a longtime affair with the chief of the Muscogee (Creek) Nation filed a lawsuit Monday accusing the chief of physical abuse and manipulation of tribal staff members to cover up the alleged affair.

Johnna Townsend filed the lawsuit in Okmulgee County District Court against Creek Nation Principal Chief George Tiger; two of Tiger's relatives who work for the tribe; Roger Wiley, the tribe's attorney general; and Dennis Northcross, a patrol captain for the Lighthorse Tribal Police.

The lawsuit details the alleged affair, saying Tiger encouraged Townsend to become a consultant after she lost a job with the tribe. The lawsuit alleges that Tiger assured her that he would help her get consulting positions.
