      Michigan Democratic Party wants Gloria Platko to resign

      The Michigan Democratic Party is asking Buena Vista Township Clerk, Gloria Platko, to resign.

      The party released this statement Thursday afternoon:

      "The Executive Committee of the Michigan Democratic Party, in a unanimous vote Wednesday, formally requested the resignation of Buena Vista Township Clerk Gloria Platko for her racially insensitive and offensive statements regarding the Township Supervisor. Her comments have no place in our party or otherwise, the committee said."

      Tuesday, the Buena Vista Township board passed a resolution asking Platko to step down and take sensitivity training.

      Wednesday, the N.A.A.C.P. asked for voters to recall her from office.
