A Marine Corps board has recommended that a politically active Marine sergeant who questioned President Barack Obama’s authority be dismissed from service with an “other than honorable” discharge.

Sgt. Gary Stein, who posted anti-Obama comments on his Facebook page, stands accused of violating a catch-all military justice provision against conduct endangering “good order and discipline.”

He is also accused of violating a Department of Defense policy limiting the political activities of service members.

The recommendation for dismissal, made late Thursday, will now go to a separation authority headed by Brig. Gen. Daniel Yoo, commander of the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, said Maj. Michael Armistead, the public affairs director for the installation.

    It’s about time they held these guys accountable.  I’ve seen them post racist rhetoric on their facebook pages as well. But to go against your Commander in Chief while you are under contractual obligation in the military.  He truly has no honor!
