Columbia Heights school board member will quit over anti-Muslim comments
Embattled Columbia Heights school Board Member Grant Nichols will resign on Tuesday, ending months of controversy after an anti-Muslim comment attributed to him was posted on Facebook.
Nichols came to his decision in a meeting Friday with Jaylani Hussein, executive director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Minnesota (CAIR); other Muslim community leaders; state Rep. Carolyn Laine, and City Council Member Donna Schmitt.
Nichols still says that someone else used his account to make the Facebook comment, and he presented a notarized letter at the meeting from an individual taking blame for the comment.
