The US Army suspended and investigated a retired three-star general from a consulting position after appearing to mock First Lady Jill Biden in a now-deleted tweet.

The retired general in question was  Lt. Gen. Gary Volesky, who served the Army previously as a spokesman. Volesky was previously contracted for a $92-an-hour consulting position with the Army before his suspension. The position lets him serve as a “senior mentor,” advising senior military officers, staff, and students participating in war games and various military activities.

Army Spokeswoman Cynthia Smith told USA Today that Lt. Gen. Theodore Martin suspended Volesky and he will remain suspended while waiting for the outcome of the investigation. Lt. Gen. Martin was the Commander of the Combined Arms Center.

The now-deleted tweet by retired Lt. Gen. Volesky responded to a June 24 tweet posted on the first lady’s Twitter account condemning the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn its landmark 1973 ruling in Roe v Wade which established the constitutional right to abortion.

The first lady lamented that women’s right to decide about their own bodies had been “stolen” after “nearly 50 years.”
