(Orlando, FL, 6/25/2020) — The Florida chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations today welcomed the resignation of Seminole County tax collector, Joel Greenberg, following federal charges against him alleging stalking and identity theft. Multiple media outlets reported his resignation after the federal indictment accused him of stalking an election opponent.

Back in 2018, CAIR-Florida and other civic organizations called out then Seminole Tax Collector Greenberg for his multiple Islamophobic, racist, and xenophobic Facebook posts. After CAIR-Florida’s condemnation, media reported that Greenberg “doubles down over controversial Muslim post”.

CAIR-Florida Communications Director Wilfredo Ruiz stated, “There is no place for xenophobic public servants in our State. We welcome the resignation of the morally corrupt tax collector Greenberg.” Upon learning of the federal charges that Greenberg faces Ruiz added: “The former Seminole tax collector is facing serious federal charges of stalking an election opponent. An openly bigoted individual like Greenberg should never hold any government position. Add to that his precarious situation with federal crimes involving dishonesty. It’s time for him to face justice and take responsibility for his actions.”
