Several news outlets are reporting that there are growing concerns among Charlottesville residents and increasing calls for the resignation of Vice-Mayor Wes Bellamy after the revelation of numerous social media posts by Mr. Bellamy which contained lewd, vulgar, sexist, racist, and homophobic material.
The Daily Progress was the first to break the story: http://www.dailyprogress.com/news/local/past-bellamy-tweets-draw-ire/article_2c5a86fa-b514-11e6-88b1-878551ca38ab.html

Bellamy is the man behind the push to tear down the Robert E. Lee monument in Charlottesville and rename Lee Park. Working with fellow councilman Kristen Szakos, Vice-Mayor Bellamy bullied council into spending over $10K to appoint a "commission" to evaluate the statues, based on his false "white supremacy" narrative. Clearly, Bellamy is the true "supremacist" in Charlottesville.
Ironically, Bellamy recently led the lynch mob against a UVA professor who made a social media comment comparing the Black Lives Matter group to a hate group. The Vice-Mayor called for his removal as a guest lecturer, and a boycott of his business. Bellamy organized and led a protest at his restaurant, based on one social media comment.
