The Denver “Womxn’s March,” set to take place Saturday, has scrubbed its website of any mention of Kerry O’Grady, the senior Secret Service agent who decried taking “a bullet” for President Trump on Facebook the month before he was elected president.
Just last week, O’Grady was prominently featured on the Denver “Womxn’s March” website with a large photo and a bio under a section titled “2019 Executive Leadership team.”
The website noted that it was O’Grady’s second year of involvement with the march and her first on the executive leadership team. It also noted that she “supported logistics and the leadership team directly in 2018.”
Following the publication of a Washington Free Beacon story raising legal questions about O’Grady’s participation in the march’s organization and evidence that she is still active on the Secret Service payroll, the march erased her from the site.
Before its deletion, O’Grady’s bio on the group’s website emphasized her “25 years as a special agent in the mostly white, male-dominated field of federal law enforcement,” before detailing that she witnessed how “institutionalized disparities and unconscious biases continue to prevent women and minorities from obtaining equality in the workplace and in the criminal justice system.”
