(FOX NEWS) - A Mississippi man was reportedly fired from his nursing job on Thursday after a viral photo showed him wearing a Confederate t-shirt -- emblazoned with a noose and the words "Mississippi Justice" -- while voting in the midterm elections.
The photograph, which was reportedly taken at a polling center near his home in Olive Branch, Miss., outraged fellow voters.
“It’s a sad time that people still have that mindset,” resident Clarence Walker told FOX13 Memphis.
“Well, I was shocked when I saw it, but there wasn't anything we can do," Election Commissioner Barry Chatham told the Local Memphis.
