State GOP Chair Urges Lawmaker To Resign Over Controversial Social Media Post

Statehouse security has asked a Republican state lawmaker to stay home after her controversial Facebook post.  

Representative Candice Keller was advised to not leave her house amid a host of threats.  Keller is under fire for a post that blamed mass shootings in Dayton and Texas on gay marriage, recreational marijuana and other targets of conservative lawmakers. Ohio Republican Party Chair Jane Timken is urging Keller to resign, calling her comments "shocking and utterly unjustifiable."  

Jim has been with WCBE since 1996. Before that he worked as a reporter at another Columbus radio station, and for three newspapers in Southwest Florida.
