Did GEICO cancel ‘weapons industry’ worker’s policy?

geckoPerhaps it’s no accident the Geico Gecko speaks in a relaxed British-Aussie accent.

A Geico policyholder states that his policy was cancelled by the insurance company because he works in the “weapons industry,” according to a report in The Examiner.

A redacted “notice of cancellation of insurance” (see below) was posted on Facebook Tuesday that clearly states: “The reason for cancellation is your vehicle … does not meet our underwriting guidelines because it is used in conjunction with a company that deals in the weapons industry.”

The policyholder, who does not identify himself, left a comment under the name of the business he works for:

“Is this USA or Russia??? Geico Insurance just canceled my Truck insurance because I make parts that are used in the Firearm industry…Folk’s wake up to what is going on in this country…”

Readers may recall that Geico fired a voice actor in April 2010 for an insulting comment directed at FreedomWorks. Actor Lance Baxter left a message in which he asked the tea party affiliated group how many “mentally retarded” people it had on staff and what it would do when a tea partyer “killed someone,” as reported by the Washington Post.
