The Charleston based Gazette-Mail reports that Pamela Ramsey Taylor is scheduled to return to work on December 23rd.

Taylor was suspended for writing a Facebook post last month that said "It will be refreshing to have a classy, beautiful, dignified First Lady back in the White House. I'm tired of seeing a Ape in heels."
