Today, the Democratic Party of Wisconsin repudiated the recent comments of Superior Mayor Bruce Hagen, and called on local leaders like Congressman Sean Duffy to do the same.

Hagen posted on Facebook earlier this week in reference to First Lady Michelle Obama, “She and her Muslim partner have destroyed the fabric of democracy that was so very hard fought for!"

“Hateful and dishonest comments like these have no place in American politics, and certainly have no place in Wisconsin,” said Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chairwoman Martha Laning. “The Democratic Party of Wisconsin strongly repudiates these shameful statements, and calls on local leaders like Republican Congressman Sean Duffy to do the same.”

Duffy has yet to say whether he agrees or disagrees with Hagen’s statements.
