In Florida, state Senator Frank Artiles is facing mounting calls to resign, after he directed racist and obscene slurs at two fellow African-American lawmakers, calling state Senator Audrey Gibson the B-word and a “girl,” and then using the N-word. Artiles has been removed as the chair of the Committee on Communications, Energy and Public Utilities over the controversy. While he has apologized for the comments, he has not agreed to resign.
