An Alabama employee of Hawk Enterprises, a defense contractor, complained to his company after receiving a birther email that he considered racist. According to Kerin Kelly, he was confronted by a vice president of the firm who said that it was patriotic to question Obama’s citizenship. Kelley, who suffers from post traumatic stress syndrome after serving in combat in Iraq, was unable to handle the situation and had to leave the work site. The company took this as a resignation and wouldn’t reinstate him.
The Alabama web site AL.com has an extensive story that I would prefer interested folks read, rather than me characterizing it.
