Two steps forward, one racist back in office…

Pamela Taylor, director of the nonprofit Clay County Development Corp., was fired in the wake of Donald Trump‘s election win after she wrote on Facebook:

“It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House. I’m tired of seeing a [sic] Ape in heels.”

Thankfully, the public did not stand for such blatant, vulgar racism from public sector — let alone Melania Trump being referred to as “classy” or “dignified” — and a petition calling for Taylor’s dismissal garnered almost 200,000 signatures.
The controversy also caused Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling, who commented that the post “just made my day,” to resign. Taylor was also effectively removed from her post — but apparently, not for too long!
According to a letter from the agency’s acting director, Taylor is scheduled to return to work at the Clay County Development Corp. on December 23.

The letter, obtained by the Charleston Gazette-Mail, notes this hasn’t been the director’s first scandalous interruption during her tenure with the CCDC.
In 2002, Taylor lost her position after being accused of stealing fundraising money, but returned to her post after a few months.
Before she was ousted in November, Taylor apologized for her Facebook comment, but told local press it led to a “hate crime against me,” revealing she and her children had received death threats.
It sounds like this woman can do or say anything and still play the victim… now, who does that remind us of?
