NEA Communications Director Keeps Job Amid Political Controversy


The communications director at the National Endowment for the Arts remains an employee there despite reports that he was asked to resign following his participation in a controversial conference call last month, FOXNews.com learned Thursday.
Yosi Sergant was one of several officials on an hour-long conference call on Aug. 10 hosted by the NEA, the White House Office of Public Engagement and United We Serve, a nationwide initiative launched by President Obama to increase volunteerism.
Patrick Courrielche, one of roughly 75 artists, musicians, writers, poets and others on the hour-long call, said Sergant was among those who encouraged the artists to create works in their respective fields that would show support for Obama’s domestic agenda in areas such as health care, energy and the environment.
It was reported in the Huffington Post on Thursday that Sergant had been asked to resign, but NEA officials have denied that claim.
More from Fox News. According to the Huffington Post, Sergant remains with the NEA but with a different position.
