Superior City Councilor Graham Garfield says several city councilors want Mayor Bruce Hagen to retract a statement he made on Facebook or resign. They say if he doesn’t, they’ll look into a citywide recall vote.
The comment, made on Facebook, related to a picture of Michele Obama posted by one of Mayor Hagen’s friends.
The post reads, “She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of democracy that was so very hard fought for.”
Mayor Hagen said he made the comment regarding a Facebook post by a former classmate.
When asked why Mayor Hagen referred to President Obama as a Muslim, Hagen said he and many others believe that the President is not a Christian.
He also said the United States was founded on Christian values.
Hagen added that he doesn’t agree with most of President Obama’s policies, saying the President has “destroyed world relationships.”
