Can you reconcile this with the case of Saily Avelenda? How do you feel when you are sympathetic with the speech, and the person being shown the door? I’m not comfortable with anyone not in a protected class being harassed or fired because someone vindictively told their boss about something they might not like.
Last month, Saily Avelenda, a senior vice president and lawyer for Lakeland Bank, was called into her boss’s office and handed a fundraising letter that Frelinghuysen sent to a member of the bank’s board of directors. It asked for donations to help him fight organized opposition to the Republican agenda. At the bottom of the letter, scrawled in pen next to his signature, there was a note: “P.S. one of the ringleaders works for your bank!”
