California prosecutor may lose his job over Maxine Waters, Michelle Obama social media posts

 

SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. (AP) — A Southern California prosecutor was disciplined Monday after posting to social media crude and profane comments about U.S. Rep. Maxine Waters, former first lady Michelle Obama, Mexican immigrants and the victim of a police shooting.

Michael Selyem, a veteran deputy district attorney who handles gang prosecutions in San Bernardino County, was placed on administrative leave while an investigation is conducted, the district attorney’s office said. He could ultimately lose his job.

In Facebook and Instagram posts, Selyem used offensive language to describe Waters, a Los Angeles Democrat who last month called on supporters to harass members of President Donald Trump’s Cabinet over the administration’s separation of families under the zero-tolerance immigration policy.

Selyem used a profane term for women’s anatomy to refer to the “loud mouthed” Waters and said “you would think someone would have shot this bitch by now,” the Southern California News Group reported.

Selyem’s other since-delated posts included a doctored picture of Michelle Obama holding a sign saying “Trump grabbed my penis” and one of a man in a giant sombrero with the caption “Mexican word of the day: Hide.”

He also posted about a person shot by police that called him a crude name and said he “got exactly what he deserved.” It wasn’t immediately clear whether the police shooting occurred in San Bernardino County or elsewhere.
