BUCKEYE – A member of the Buckeye Town Council has been accused of sending explicit text messages to a town employee.

Public records show Councilman Dave Rioux is accused by a female employee of sending her multiple messages of a sexual nature. They include requests to join him in his hot tub.

That employee told supervisors she was afraid she would be forced to have sex with Rioux in order to keep her job. Rioux filed paperwork to run for re-election this week.
