As offensive as many found them, Supervisor Ally Miller’s Facebook comments expressing pride in her whiteness did not violate county policy and are not grounds for censure or any other discipline from the county board.
That’s according to several privileged legal opinions provided by Deputy County Attorney Andrew Flagg, which the supervisors voted to make public Tuesday.
Miller wrote from her personal Facebook account several hours after an apparent white supremacist drove a vehicle into a crowd of counter demonstrators in Charlottesville, Virginia in mid-August, killing a woman. Miller wrote, “I’m sick and tired of being hit for being white … It is all about making us feel like we need to apologize. I am WHITE-and proud of it! No apologies necessary.”
