Wife Of Militia Member Fired For Effigy Blames Governor

The Louisville Courier-Journal reports:

The protester who hoisted an effigy of Gov. Andy Beshear from a tree at the Kentucky State Capitol has been fired from his job at an auto dealer. Terry Bush, president of the Kentucky 3 Percenters group, was fired by Neil Huffman Auto Group on Tuesday, his wife Patsy Bush confirmed on Wednesday morning.

Patsy Bush is the state secretary of the Kentucky 3 Percenters and was also present at the protest in Frankfort. “He was fired because this governor is more important than the regular Joe out in this state trying to put food on their tables,” Patsy Bush said Wednesday morning.

“They fired him for exercising his (First Amendment) right to free speech where no laws were broken, no one was terrorized, no one was threatened and Neil Huffman was never mentioned or involved in any way.”

The 3 Percenters are a white supremacist militia.
