A member of the Pompano Beach Fire Rescue Department was recently fired because he couldn't keep politics away from the workplace. Clint Pierce, a Florida firefighter for the past 20 years, ended up getting burned when his latest stunt -- putting toilet paper that bore President Obama's face in the fire house bathroom -- was deemed offensive.
This isn't the first time Pierce allowed his political leanings to mix with work. According to the Sun Sentinel, he was to "refrain from any further posting of political messages on any city property" after decorating his locker with an anti-Obama sticker in 2011 and using an Obama clown coffee mug in February.
After an investigation, Fire Chief Harry L. Small decided to terminate the firefighter due to his disrespect and insubordination.
