Foxx Denounces Biden’s Firing of EEOC General Counsel

Today, Education and Labor Committee Republican Leader Virginia Foxx (R-NC) issued the following statement strongly criticizing the Biden administration’s unprecedented firing of Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) General Counsel Sharon Fast Gustafson, ending her Senate-confirmed, four-year appointment more than two years early, in contravention of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act:

“This is a pattern. President Biden calls for the end to ‘partisan warfare,’ only to turn around and demand that Senate-confirmed officials resign so he can make room for his left-wing friends. President Biden should take a note from General Counsel Gustafson, who stuck to her commitment and refused to cave to partisan pressure. This unprecedented firing of an honorable public official which occurred just hours after she was asked to resign is unwarranted and should be immediately rescinded. General Counsel Gustafson should be reinstated so she can complete her four-year term, independently and free from undo political influence.”
