Suspected Mail Bomber’s Former Boss: ‘He Called Himself a White Supremacist’
On Friday night, CNN’s Kate Bolduan sat down with the former boss of suspected mail bomber Cesar Sayoc.
It was quite revealing.
Debra Gureghian, who supervised Sayoc when he was a pizza driver actually sat in the politically stickered van seen in the news today and spent one-on-one time with him.
She described him as a neatly dressed man who wore cologne and managed to keep it together while on the job. His extreme politics, though, were never that far from his lips.
Gureghian said Sayoc knew she was a lesbian and told her that she would burn in hell and was a mistake but she found no reason to fire him.
“I knew he had issues,” Gurighian said. “He really was not — he definitely beat to the beat of his own drum. He was anti-gay, anti-black, anti-Jewish, you name it, everybody that really wasn’t white and wasn’t a white supremacist didn’t belong in the world, that’s what he used to say to me all the time.”
She later said that in spite of identifying as a white supremacist, he also said he was part of the Seminole tribe. The tribe has since distanced themselves from him.
At one point, Bolduan also point blank if Sayoc identified as a white supremacist.
“Yes, he called himself a white supremacist and he called himself a Nazi supporter,” Gurighian replied.
She then added this: He “said that the people that he labeled were very weak and that he would — that he wanted to purify society. So, in order to do that, he would have to get rid of the gays and the lesbians and the transgenders and the blacks and the Jews and whoever else didn’t follow his suit, whoever else didn’t follow his policy and political views.”
