Gloria Platko, a Democratic Township Clerk in Buena Vista, Michigan, has refused to step down from her position after being caught on tape calling Township SupervisorÂ Dwayne Parker â€śan arrogant n***er,â€ť Newsone reports.
The 63-year-old Platko claims that it was a â€śslip of the tongue.â€ť In speaking toÂ NBC 25,Â Platko denied she was racist because she has black friends.
Platko said: â€śIâ€™ve eaten Thanksgiving dinner with black friends at their house. So Iâ€™m far from prejudiced. You need to go interview some of the black people who have supported me for the last four or five years.â€ť
