Amarillo, Texas - Amarillo Mayoral candidate David Grisham has been fired from Pantex.

Grisham says he lost his job as a guard. He says Pantex put him on ninety days administrative leave December 23rd during a review by the Department of Energy.

He says his security clearance was yanked because he hadn't been to work for ninety days.

He says he was fired because he didn't have a security clearance.

He says he will try to get his job back through the Pantex Guard Union and is exploring a civil rights lawsuit.

The Repent Amarillo leader is planning a mayoral rally Sunday in Sam Houston park with Pastor Terry Jones who publicly burn the Muslim Holy Book in March.
