Mike Steele’s Facebook profile photo

The Fort Worth City Council voted unanimously this evening (Tuesday, Aug. 6) to remove Mike Steele from the city’s Human Relations Commission.

The motion was the final step to  formally removing Steele, whose Facebook racist and transphobic posts were exposed last month by Emily Farris, a Fort Worth resident, and first reported by the Voice.

This post will be updated as more information becomes available.
