The New York Times reports:
The White House drew criticism from a prominent Jewish group on Wednesday, a day after it appointed a speechwriter it fired for attending a gathering with white nationalists to a commission that helps preserve sites related to the Holocaust.
Darren Beattie, who was fired in 2018, was appointed to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad for a three-year term that will last into the next administration.
Mr. Beattie’s dismissal followed the revelation that two years earlier he had appeared on a panel with Peter Brimelow, the founder of the anti-immigrant site VDare, which the Southern Poverty Law Center has labeled a “hate website.”

We are calling on @POTUS to immediately rescind the appointment of Darren Beattie to the Commission for the Preservation of America’s Heritage Abroad. Beattie attended an event and participated on a panel with white supremacists. Full statement: https://t.co/R68Yb6NLxw
