The University of Michigan governing board has censured regent Ron Weiser, who also chairs the Michigan Republican Party for calling female Democratic political leaders “witches.”
Weiser also took the analogy further suggesting the women were in for a “burning at the stake” in 2022 elections.
Weiser says he takes “full responsibility” for his “poorly chosen words” but also said he will not resign.
“I pledge to be part of a respectful dialogue going forward and challenge my colleagues and others to do the same. I will not be canceled,” he said.
