Obama Toilet Paper Stunt Leads to Termination

The Pompano Beach, Florida firefighter who caused a stir in October by installing Barack Obama toilet paper in his fire station, has been terminated.

Firefighter Clint Pierce, who has been described as an outspoken Republican, and who has been disciplined in the past for his political commentary in the workplace, was terminated last week. Pierce was a 20 year veteran.

In November, 2011 Pierce allegedly posted an anti-Obama bumper sticker in the workplace. Earlier this year he was investigated for drinking from a coffee mug that depicted Obama as a clown. The final straw was the Obama toilet paper that occurred just 3 weeks before the election.

The Examiner.com is reporting that Pierce was terminated for “extreme insubordination”.

    One less job thanks to Obama.

    No, Mr Buono, one less job due to some firefighter letting his irrational hatred of our duly-elected President overshadow his professional discretion.

    The President had nothing to do with this. Other than being black, of course, which is all some people care about.

    Pierce brought this upon himself.
