(PatriotWise.com)- Shortly after the November election, a number of people began to call for the blacklisting of Trump supporters.
On November 6, 2020, Washington Post columnist Jennifer Rubin warned that any Republican questioning the election results should “never serve in office, join a corporate board, find a faculty position or be accepted into ‘polite’ society” – adding “We have a list.”
Even Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez got involved, tweeting “Is anyone archiving these Trump sycophants for when they try to downplay or deny their complicity in the future?”
One group of anti-Trump activists went so far as to create a blacklist website called “The Trump Accountability Project.” The group promoted its blacklist claiming that any employer considering hiring former Trump Administration staffers should know they will face consequences for hiring “anyone who helped Trump attack American values.”
After severe backlash, the so-called Trump Accountability Project website was shut down and its members locked down or removed their Twitter accounts.
In response to these rather soviet-style calls, attorney Leslie McAdoo Gordon tweeted “If you interfere with people’s ability to earn a living, be on notice that you can be held accountable IN COURT and forced to pay damages.”
Well, this past week three Minnesota attorneys have filed a lawsuit against their former employer claiming they were fired for posting pro-Trump and pro-police content to social media.
William Kain, Margaret Henehan, and Kelsey Quarberg, all partners of Kain and Scott in St. Cloud, Minnesota, are suing president and managing partner Wesley Scott for wrongful termination.
According to the suit, in April Welsey Scott sent an email to all the partners in the firm accusing the January 6 rioters of being “traitors” who should be shot.
The lawsuit claims Scott then allegedly asked an operations manager to fire two “racist” employees because they had posted pro-Trump and pro-police content on social media.
When the operations manager refused, Scott fired the manager and one employee, then threatened to fire another.
When the three partners in question told Scott that firing someone for political beliefs is illegal in Minnesota, Scott fired them as well.
What’s worse, Scott then allegedly called the police on a pregnant Kelsey Quarberg claiming she was trespassing and accusing her of physically threatening him.
Kain and Scott is the top Google-reviewed bankruptcy law firm in Minnesota. Which will probably come in handy since, by terminating these three partners who own 50 percent of the firm, the future of Kain and Scott is uncertain.
