Storm Durham tells Big League Politics in an exclusive interview that she was fired from the Virginia Department of Social Services for possessing a concealed carry permit.
“Yesterday my supervisor came and got me out of my office, and asked me to come into our associate director’s office,” Durham told BLP. “There were 3 police officers. The 3 police officers stood outside the office while they told me I was being dismissed from the agency.”
“They said it was a safety factor. She [my supervisor] said you’re a safety risk to our building due to having a concealed carry permit,” Durham said.
“I said, my gun has never even been on the property. She said how do I know that?. I said, search me!” Durham said.
“So then I told them this is discrimination why are you treating me like a criminal?. I said can I go to the bathroom, they said no that’s a safety concern.”
The officers brought Durham to her office and she got her belongings.
How did Durham think the supervisor found out about the concealed carry permit?
“About 2 months ago, my supervisor called me in and said do you feel safe in your home? I said, of course. My boyfriend has no criminal record or anything. He said well we found out there are guns in your home. I said And? What’s the correlation? I said there have always been guns in my home since I was a little kid!”
Durham thinks her firing violated the law.
“I think it’s definitely illegal,” she said.
Durham noted other small details the agency put in writing — such as saying that she missed work due to a concussion and a broken leg, but she had doctor’s notes for those absences and she said they were excused. She also said the department faulted her dress code “because I wore loafers to training one day.”
Mitch McConnell Preparing Exit Strategies, Potential Successors in Advance of Possible Retirement
Will Mitch retire?
Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has reportedly created a shortlist of potential successors, with the establishment Republican considering a possible retirement before his term ends. McConnell was reelected to another Senate term in 2020, and the Intercept broke the news of his retirement considerations on Thursday.
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is reportedly McConnell’s first pick for his successor. Former UN Ambassador Kelly Craft and Kentucky Secretary of State Michael Adams are also possible replacements. McConnell, 79, has served as a Kentucky Senator since 1985.
Kentucky law currently would allow Governor Andy Beshear- a Democrat- to appoint McConnell’s successor if he retired. However, McConnell is pushing for the Republican state legislature to pass reforms allowing them to select replacements for Senators who have resigned. McConnell’s quiet boosting of legislative reforms to appoint interim Senators led to the reports of his potential retirement, although it’s unclear when he plans to leave the picture.
McConnell largely alienated the Republican Party with a forceful denunciation of former President Donald Trump during the second sham impeachment trial targeting the President, although he declined to vote to convict the President on the basis of legality. A Republican candidate in the mold of McConnell’s 20th century style would have a difficult time winning a Kentucky GOP primary, and McConnell’s appointed pick may start off in such an election with a considerable handicap. In addition, the legacy Senator remains popular in Kentucky, although at least one county party censured him for his betrayal of Trump in January.
