Capitol Building Rioters Are Losing Their Jobs After Being Identified

Capitol Building Rioters Are Losing Their Jobs After Being Identified

A number of people have lost their jobs since the rioting and violence at the Capitol Building in Washington DC on Wednesday after their employees identified them.

The first to go was a man who decided to attend the invasion inside the seat of US government wearing his work lanyard.

Not the smartest move of all time, you'd have to say.

Anyway, that man - from Maryland - worked for a digital marketing company called Navistar Direct Marketing.

After being alerted to their employee's presence at the Trump-backed incursion into the Congress and Senate building, Navistar released a statement that read: "Navistar Direct Marketing was made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021 during the security breach.

"While we support all employee's right to peaceful, lawful exercise of free speech, any employee demonstrating dangerous conduct that endangers the health and safety of others will no longer have an employment opportunity with Navistar Direct Marketing."

Michael Hustava, Saint Vincent's Senior Director of Marketing and Communications, told CNN: "As a result of that investigation, Dr. Saccone has submitted and we have accepted his letter of resignation, effective immediately. He will no longer be associated with Saint Vincent College in any capacity."

Speaking to the local Tribune-Review, Saccone said: "I've been there 21 years. I didn't want all this terrible media kerfuffle to tarnish the school. I decided it would be better if I just resigned."

Donald Trump has now committed to an orderly transfer of power between his administration and that of President elect Joe Biden.

However, he continues to reiterate his baseless claims that the election of November 3 was in some way 'stolen' or fraudulent.

Trump spoke at a rally before the violence started on Wednesday, and many senior US political figures have accused him of inciting the storming of the building, and called for him to be removed from office before the official date on January 20.
