Ohio Republican Party Chairwoman Jane Murphy Timken on Monday called for GOP state Rep. Candice Keller to resign after the lawmaker linked mass shootings in the U.S. to things such as gay marriage and “drag queen advocates.” “While our nation was in utter shock over the acts of violence in El Paso and Dayton, Republican State Representative Candice Keller took to social media to state why she thought these acts were happening. Candice Keller’s Facebook post was shocking and utterly unjustifiable,” Timken said in a statement to The Hill. “Our nation is reeling from these senseless acts of violence and public servants should be working to bring our communities together, not promoting divisiveness. I’m calling on Candice Keller to resign,” Timken added. The comments came after a weekend where mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, left more than 30 people dead.
