A Flint City Council member who gave a Nazi salute at a recent meeting has been stripped of leadership positions, MLive reports.
Eric Mays' colleagues this week voted 6-0 to remove him as the body's vice president and finance committee chair. A similar effort failed earlier this month.
The reprimand came after Mays was ordered removed from Monday's meeting for lashing out at a city administrator. At a Jan. 13 meeting, he repeatedly called Council President Monica Galloway "Hitler" and gave the Nazi salute.
He addressed the the incident in a recent town hall, saying, “I researched what apology means. If I offended anybody, I regret it. But I’m acting under a dictatorship.”
In 2017, Mays was convicted of pawning a city laptop nine times.
