LANSING, MI (AP) -
Gov. Rick Snyder won't say whether a Michigan member of the Republican National Committee should resign for posting an article critical of gay people on Facebook.
The Republican governor told reporters Monday that he's "not going to get in the middle of all that." Snyder adds that discrimination of any kind is inappropriate and "it's important we stand up for all people."
Ex-state Rep. Dave Agema recently posted an excerpt from an article that includes the assertion that gays account for half the murders in large cities. Some Republicans say Agema should quit the Republican National Committee, which he's refusing to do.
Republican Secretary of State Ruth Johnson also declines to say much on the controversy, saying it's up to Agema to decide if he should step down.
