Gregory Conte, a substitute teacher and field hockey coach at the all-girl Academy of the Holy Cross in Kensington, lost his job when school authorities discovered that he was director of operations at the National Policy Institute, led by white nationalist provocateur Richard Spencer.

Fox5DC reports that Conte had worked at the school since 2014. The school told Newsweek that it had fired him in October when it learnt of his alt-right connections, and not made the issue public "until Mr. Conte made it an issue for himself."

Conte used the alias Gregory Ritter while working with the NPI and on Twitter, where his profile links to Spencer's AltRight.Com website. In an August podcast on the site, he discusses attending the notorious Unite the Right white nationalist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, alongside Spencer.

In a January 3 tweet, Conte wrote "Hitler did not commit any crime!"
