The director of a West Virginia non-profit gets to keep her job.

In a Facebook post in November, Clay County Development Corporation Director Pamela Taylor insulted the current first lady while celebrating the election of Donald Trump.


“It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady in the White House,” she wrote at the time. “I’m tired of seeing an ape in heels.”

Taylor was later suspended by the Bureau of Senior Services, which oversees Clay County Development Corporation. Meanwhile, Clay Mayor Beverly Whaling was forced to resign because she praised Taylor’s Facebook post.

Less than a month after the controversy began, the Charleston Gazette-Mail revealed on Saturday that Taylor would return to her job.
