Update: Beard Fired from ALPLM Post

After yesterday's news of his three shoplifting arrests, Richard Beard has been sacked from his position as head of the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and Museum, the Chicago Sun-Times reports tonight. The Tribune has more, noting that Beard was notified of his firing over the phone.

"Jan Grimes, director of the Historic Preservation Agency, will run the Lincoln museum and library temporarily. In addition, former Historic Preservation Director Robert Coomer will fill in for Beard at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, the not-for-profit group that raises money to support the library."
