Midland School Board member submits resignation after anti-gay rant
News

 

Midland Superintendent Dean Stanley says the board convened Monday morning and voted unanimously to accept Clint McCance's resignation. Stanley says there was no discussion.

McCance posted his remarks in reaction to a campaign asking people to wear purple on Oct. 20 to show solidarity after several gay and lesbian youths killed themselves after they were bullied. McCance said in his post that the dead children "killed thereselves because of their sin."

McCance did not return a phone message left by the AP at his carpet cleaning business in Pleasant Plains, which is about 70 miles northeast of Little Rock.
