Members of the University of Michigan board of regents are calling for fellow regent Ron Weiser to re after Weiser, chairman of the Michigan Republican Party, called the three highest ranking female elected officials in the state "witches. During a political event in Oakland County, Weiser made the comment in reference to Gov. He also used the word assassination when asked about what Republicans could do about Reps.
You have to do what you need to get out the vote in those areas. That's how you beat people. While I should have chosen my words more carefully, anyone who knows me understands I would never advocate for violence. I will not be reing from the University of Michigan, and our focus at the Michigan Republican Party remains the same —winning in At least some of those accused of playing a role in the plot are from Lake Orion and Clarkston, located in northern Oakland County. Meijer and Upton also faced a deluge of death threats after their impeachment votes.
We saw this firsthand when Republican legislators met with the very militias that tried to kidnap and kill the governor, and when Republican Party leaders helped organize the Jan. Capitol building," Whitmer press secretary Bobby Leddy said.
In addition to his role on U-M's board, Weiser is one of the university's biggest donors.
He is a graduate. Regents Mark Bernstein, Michael Behm and Jordan Acker, all Democrats, said Weiser's statements were dangerous, disgusting and beneath a leader of the university. Suggesting that the work of a political party should enable burning these three women at the stake is even worse," Bernstein said in a phone interview. In doing so, we must protect democracy, honor public service and support our students. Regent Weiser has failed to do so. Our university and the people of this state deserve better.
He should re. And the FBI-thwarted attacks on our governor. Furthermore, sexist language referring to the governor, attorney general, and secretary of state as 'witches' has no place on our campus.
This language and behavior is incompatible with service to the University of Michigan," Acker tweeted. They are completely antithetical to what our university is about. Board Chair Denise Ilitch, a Democrat, condemned Weiser's comments but did not go so far as to call for him to step down.
His use of violent imagery crosses a line that is inconsistent with what should be our shared values. There should be no place for physical threats by elected or political leaders on our board or in our state. The board itself has no power to force out Weiser.
He and the other members of the board are elected in statewide elections. Weiser was elected to the board in after being off for several years.
His term runs until Ted Goodman, a Republican party spokesman, did not directly answer Free Press questions about the words used by Weiser during the event. His statements are not only sexist, but markedly dangerous and will only serve to damage the institution's reputation. We call on him to re immediately. Whitmer, Nessel, Benson and others all condemned the statement on Friday while poking fun at Weiser on social media. me up for that coven. Benson tweeted an image from the "Wizard of Oz" film showing Dorothy and Glinda the Good Witch, with the hashtag newprofilepic.
Weiser was recently elected the leader of the Michigan Republican Party, after having served in the role before. He defeated Laura Cox, the former party chair.
After Cox said she would not seek the position again, she mounted a last-minute campaign to thwart Weiser and co-chair Meshawn Maddock from winning. Calling someone a witch is NOT misogynist," Maddock tweeted. Contact Dave Boucher: dboucher freepress.
