“Michael Miselis, a Northrop Grumman systems engineer who allegedly is a member of a white supremacist organization and participated in a violent rally in Charlottesville, Va., last summer no longer is employed at the company, a Northrop Grumman spokesman said Friday.
“The news follows a Thursday report by the investigative news organization ProPublica and the television program “Frontline,” which identified Miselis in photos and videos from the rally, where he is seen with arms raised and tape covering his hands.

Our leadership team will not allow that to happen, and we are determined to take the appropriate actions to ensure our foundation remains strong well into the future.”
