LANSING, Mich. (WLNS) - A letter written by a group of republican lawmakers likely to be released Wednesday encourages tolerance.
This is after comments made by Republican National Committeeman Dave Agema.
The former lawmaker made anti-Islamic and anti-gay remarks in recent radio interviews and social media.
6 News sat down with Representative Dave Camp and got his reaction. Representative Camp isn't saying Agema should resign, but he says it's up to Agema to decide.
"Basically, I think if you look at coming off Martin Luther King Day, one of the items there is about civility and treating others the way you'd like to be treated, and those were really hallmarks of Martin Luther King's legacy, and I think we need to continue that. So I don't think those are comments that have any place in public discourse right now," said Representative Dave Camp, (R), Midland.
Agema defended himself against the criticism in a Facebook post saying, "people are feeding half-truths to the news within the GOP, stirring up divisiveness."
