Update: One UMass employee no longer has a job.
UMass Memorial Medical Center in Worcester tweeted this morning:
We have been made aware that one or more of our employees may have been involved in the violence that took place at our Nation's Capitol. We strongly condemn such behavior, if true, and have initiated an investigation.
Meanwhile, in Malden, a group of residents have stepped up the fight to keep resident Mark Sahady out.
Sahady, one of the organizers of those periodic events in Boston where white supremacists waltz around pretending to be in favor of straight people, went to Washington for what might be our loser president's last rally, although unlike so many other attendees, has yet to say if he then stormed the Capitol. He's only repoted that he organized a bus down there for fellow rightwingers.
Not that Sahady has anything against violence per se. On Jan. 3, he responded to a tweet by Joe Biden that if Biden tries anything Sahady doesn't like - including Covid-19 lockdowns - Biden should be ready to be met with force: "Get your guns ready people."
Sahady seems more put out that in a report this week, Malden Patch linked him with Chris Hood, a former Malden resident who organized a local neo-Nazi group that Sahady says he has nothing to do with.
Patch reports that after news broke of the fatal riot in Washington, Malden Police sent an officer to Hood's last known Malden address to see if he still lived in town, but found he did not. Police declined to say where Hood lives now.
Local white supremacists joined the seditious mob in Washington today.
