Rachel Dolezal Resigns from NAACP Post amid Furor over Her Racial Identity
There has been a stunning turn of events in the controversy surrounding a local NAACP leader whose parents say she has falsely portrayed herself as African-American.
Rachel Dolezal, the president of the NAACP chapter in Spokane, Wash., announced in a Facebook post Monday that she is resigning from her position.
A firestorm erupted last week when Dolezal's parents, Ruthann and Larry Dolezal, said on "Good Morning America" that their daughter had been pretending to be black for years.
Former Massachusetts Sen. Scott Brown said on "Outnumbered" that Dolezal was caught lying and committing fraud, so it was appropriate that she either be fired or resign.
"The problem is that she lied and she got that job by false pretenses. And that's where the issue is for me," Brown said.
"If people can't trust you to speak truth about yourself, how can they trust you to speak truth about anything else that you might talk about?" Jedediah Bila asked.
Andrea Tantaros noted the recent transition of Caitlyn Jenner and wondered if a person can have "trans-racial" feelings.
