SOUTHLAKE, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – Keller ISD Trustee Jo Lynn Haussmann finds herself at the center of a public relations storm after making remarks against Muslims and a Southlake city councilman.
On a recent Facebook post, Haussmann wrote, quote: ““SOUTH LAKE – Do you realize because SO FEW voters took the time and responsibility to VOTE in the municipal elections – YOU NOW HAVE A ‘MUSLIM’ on the City Council!!! What A SHAME!!!!!”READ MORE: 2 Men Killed After Crane Falls On Pickup Truck On Texas Interstate
She’s since taken the post down and apologized.
But that hasn’t stopped the call for her resignation.
Hadi Jawad of the Dallas Peace Center says, “She has disqualified herself from being in a leadership position.”
Alia Salem, Executive Director of the North Texas chapter of the Council of American-Islamic Relations says, “It hurts me, you know we want to get to a point where Muslims are not made to feel as though they are not part of this society.” Salem says Haussmann’s apology is not enough.
