EUGENE, Ore. – The CEO and owner of a cannabis testing business in Eugene is stepping down after being accused of taking part in neo-Nazi activities.

The Oregonian reports the group Eugene Antifa claims Bethany Sherman of OG Analytical has ties to white power groups. They claim she has supplied food for their gatherings and supported them.

In a statement to the newspaper, Sherman denied being a neo-Nazi and said her only crime is a thought crime.

“If you have ‘white pride’ it automatically makes you a Nazi, and you are ostracized, attacked and lynched by your community,” Sherman said. “I admit, I am proud that I am white, and I’m not ashamed of my heritage.”

Sherman said she has withdrawn all communication she had with an online community, but denies that it was a neo-Nazi organization.

She said she is resigning from OG Analytical and putting the company up for sale.
