Middleville – An elected official in a western Michigan community has apologized for posting a line of online laughs about the death of conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh.

Fisk, a council member and village president, posted a long series of “HAHAHA” next to a news story about Limbaugh’s death last week.
“I’m not going to argue that I did something that was right. I wouldn’t dream of it and I hear … the opinions and the thoughts on both sides,” Fisk said. “And I agree. It was a very stupid mistake. No question.”
Some residents in the Barry County community want Fisk to resign, though she has defenders.
“I support free speech, and I support Amanda Fisk’s right to share whatever she chooses on her private Facebook page,” Jennifer Meyer said.
