TRENTON, N.J. (AP) — A state worker who also heads a local NAACP chapter has been fired from his state job over several anti-Semitic and racist social media posts.
A Labor Department spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday that Jeffrey Dye was dismissed. He had been hired in February as a business representative, earning a $56,000 salary.
The Facebook posts by Dye included one that stated it was “a damn shame” and a “disgrace” that the United States sends billions of dollars in aid to Israel.
Another cited former state Schools Development Authority Lizette-Delgado, who recently stepped down over allegations of patronage. He accused her of "hiring all Latino family members and friends and excluding black people."
