A Maryland man who was pictured wearing his work ID during the Capitol breach has been fired from his job.
Navistar Direct Marking, a Maryland-based marketing company released a statement saying that after an investigation, they identified and fired the employee:
“Navistar Direct Marketing was made aware that a man wearing a Navistar company badge was seen inside the U.S Capitol on January 6th, during that security breach. After review of the photographic evidence the employee in question has been terminated for cause. ”
The company went on to state that while they support to right to protest, they do not support endangering the health and safety of others:
“While we support all employee’s right to a 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.”
The FBI is currently investigating that Capitol breach and is asking the public to help them identify those who were involved.
The Metropolitan Police Department is also offering a reward of up to $1,000 to anyone who provides information about those involved in the breach that leads to an arrest and indictment.
