Kyle Rittenhouse’s Lawyer Calls for Maryland Governor to Step Down After Firing Employee for Supporting His Client
The lawyer representing Kyle Rittenhouse is calling for Republican Maryland Governor Larry Hogan to step down after his office fired a member of his staff for supporting the teenager on social media.
On Saturday, Governor Hogan’s office announced the termination of Arthur “Mac” Love IV. Since 2015, he was the deputy director of the Governor’s Office of Community Initiatives, which oversees the state’s ethnic and cultural commissions, community service programs and religious outreach.
One of the posts that lead to Love’s termination featured a photo of Rittenhouse cleaning graffiti, with Love writing “I’m grateful that conservatives are rallying behind this kid. He genuinely seems like a good person.”
“These divisive images and statements are inconsistent with the mission and core values of the Office of Community Initiatives. Earlier today, I relieved this employee of his duties. Kevin Craft, administrative director of the Governor’s Commission on African Affairs, will assume these duties effective immediately,” Steve McAdams, executive director of the Governor’s Office on Community Initiatives, said in a statement Saturday afternoon.
Apparently, anything conservatives support is “divisive” and they must cave to liberal narratives to keep their jobs, even in a Republican governor’s office.
The legal fees and other costs of Kyle’s defense will be provided through donations to #FightBack Foundation Inc., a Texas 501(c)(4) foundation created by John Pierce and Lin Wood to protect law- abiding American citizens whose rights are being trampled on by state and local governments that are more concerned with appeasing mobs than protecting those rights.
