A Tulsa community activist group, citing ties to white supremacist groups, wants a County Court Clerk employee to resign or be fired. Marq Lewis is with We the People Oklahoma. He’s says he has seen videos where the employee and her husband spout racist views.

Tulsa County Court Clerk Don Newberry says he finds racism in any form offensive, but outside the office there are free speech considerations. As long as they’re not brought into the workplace, employees are allowed to have and give their beliefs.

In the office, Newberry says he’s received no complaints about the worker.
