Tell Mifflin County (PA) Commissioner to resign for bigoted posts

We demand that Mifflin County Commissioner Lisa Nancollas resign for her bigoted Facebook posts. An elected official who holds these views can not represent all of the people.

Why is this important?

Mifflin County Commissioner Lisa Nancollas (Republican) was caught posting bigoted Facebook posts on her campaign site. She has since taken them down, but they are available on news sites, including her hometown paper (http://lewistownsentinel.com/page/content.detail/id/588669/Facebook-post-stirs-controversy.html?nav=5010).

She still has anti-Islam posts on her personal Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/mifflincountyteaparty?ref=br_rs).

The first post was a meme — an image, often with text, meant to be spread widely through the internet — of a mosque with a red “no” symbol covering it. It also said “No Islam Allowed.” The commissioner followed the post with a message for anyone following her page.

“If you don’t like what I post on my wall then don’t look at my wall,” the second post said. “Also, I believe in the Christian God. I don’t believe in Islam, sharia law nor do I believe in Allah.”

She said people “are only allowed in the kingdom of God if they accept God as their savior not Allah,” in a third post. She has since deleted the meme but has continued posting about Islam.
