Scaramucci incorrectly listed as dead in Harvard Law alumni directory: report

Anthony Scaramucci was incorrectly listed as dead in the newest edition of the Harvard Law School alumni directory, according to The Washington Post.

Scaramucci, who was suddenly removed from his new post as White House communications director Monday just 10 days after taking the position, reportedly has an asterisk next to his name in the new directory mailed to alumni this week. The asterisk indicates that he passed away since the last directory was published in 2011.

"Regrettably, there is an error in the Harvard Law School alumni directory in the listing for Anthony Scaramucci," a Harvard spokeswoman told The Post. "We offer our sincere apologies to Mr. Scaramucci. The error will be corrected in subsequent editions."

The former hedge fund manager lost his job Monday, hours after former Homeland Security Secretary John Kelly was sworn in as President Trump's new White House chief of staff.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said in a statement after the news broke that "he felt it was best to give chief of staff John Kelly a clean slate and the ability to build his own team."

Scaramucci's departure from the White House comes just days after a profanity-laced interview with The New Yorker in which he unloaded on former chief of staff Reince Priebus, calling him "a f---ing paranoid schizophrenic" and blasted chief strategist Stephen Bannon for attempting to build his brand while serving in the White House.
