St. Louis SEIU assault victim's brother fired by the city two days before Christmas

In November, Kenneth Gladney spoke at the Tea Party Express gathering in downtown Atlanta.  Most of you will remember that Gladney was assaulted by SEIU thugs at a St. Louis townhall gathering in August, 2009.  Big Government has learned that Gladney's brother, Keith, was fired by the City of St. Louis on December 23, 48 hours before Christmas:
As bad as Ebenezer Scrooge was, at least he didn’t fire Bob Cratchit right before Christmas. I can’t say the same for the St. Louis Dept of Health. Animal Control Officer, Keith Gladney was fired on December 23rd, less than 48 hours before Christmas Day.

Regular readers of Big Government will recognize the sur name of this unfortunate soul who finds himself unemployed just as the holidays are upon us. Yes, Keith Gladney is the brother of Kenneth Gladney, the man who was assaulted by leaders of the St. Louis SEIU outside of Rep. Russ Carnahan’s Town Hall for Health Care on August 6, 2009.

Considering the fact that government work seems to be the only growth industry in this economy Keith probably thought he was in a stable job, serving diligently for the Animal Control agency, a division of the St. Louis Dept. of Health. And, considering he was just given a positive job performance rating as recently as October, it must have come as a heartbreaking shock to learn of this Dickensian turn of events just he was preparing for his Christmas.

So, what changed between September and today? What could have been the reason for Mr. Gladney’s termination?

Could it be that Mr. Gladney was outspoken in his support for his brother?

That he called on the County Prosecuting Attorney to bring justice to his family for the assault that had been captured on video and detailed in a 23-page police report?

Is it a coincidence that the same Prosecuting Attorney that Keith called out in his statement is also one of the highest ranking officials in the government structure that Keith worked for?
Perhaps it is time for Eric Holder to launch a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act investigation of the St. Louis chapter of the SEIU.  Yeah.  Like that is going to happen.  Remember this?
