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.

More than 300 people participated by video conference during a Middleville council meeting Tuesday. Public comment about Amanda Fisk’s Facebook post lasted more than two hours.

Fisk, a council member and village president, posted a long series of “HAHAHA” next to a news story about Limbaugh’s death last week.

Comments on the Village of Middleville's Facebook page turned negative after a council member and village president of the community posted a series of "HAHAHA" next to a news story about Limbaugh's death on her own Facebook page.

“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.
