Via The Hill:

Former NAACP leader Rachel Dolezal, who garnered significant media attention after revelations that she had misrepresented her racial heritage, has been voted off of a Washington city police oversight commission.

The Spokane City Council held a unanimous vote to remove Dolezal from a spot on the city’s police oversight board on Thursday, according to KREM-TV in Spokane. She had refused calls to resign after a report accused her of revealing confidential information she learned while on the board and that she created a hostile work environment.

A second member of the committee who was named in the report that accused Dolezal of improper conduct accepted calls to resign, while a third is still reviewing the investigation, according to KREM.

Dolezal’s story was thrust into the spotlight this month after Spokane learned its NAACP leader was not African-American, as she had claimed. Dolezal has said since that, though “Caucasion by birth,” she identifies as black culturally and that she struggled with her identity.
