POMPANO BEACH, Fla. — Placing toilet paper imprinted with President Barack Obama's face in a fire station has led to a Florida firefighter's termination.
It was Clint Pierce's third instance of posting political paraphernalia on city property and a violation of a direct order to cease and desist from such behavior, according to city records. He had until 5 p.m. Friday to turn in his badge.
