"A Michigan mayor has apologized for anti-gay comments she apparently posted on Facebook over the summer.
“Yes I said it, yes I accept full responsibility,” Troy, Michigan, Mayor Janice Daniels told CNN affiliate WDIV on Monday. “Yes I regret it, yes I am sorry.”
A group of student demonstrators gathered outside Troy City Hall on Monday in protest of Daniels’ comments and had called for her to step down."
The facebook post in question occured before she was elected mayor. Her comment probably was out of line. She could have expressed her views without relying on a slur some consider offensive.
