SEATTLE, June 18 (Reuters) - The city council in Washington state voted on Thursday to remove civil rights activist Rachel Dolezal, who drew national attention over her racial identity, from a police oversight commission over conduct violations, a Spokane city spokesman said.

Six members of the Spokane City Council voted unanimously to remove Dolezal following a city probe that found she had publicly named citizens who made complaints against police officers, in violation of confidentiality rules, and had also engaged in workplace harassment, city spokesman Brian Coddington said.
