Several prominent Republicans have called for Rep. David Stringer to resign from the Legislature over racist comments he made recently, though his two seatmates in his Yavapai County-based legislative district aren’t among them.

Sen. Karen Fann, the incoming Senate president declined to comment on whether Stringer should resign, telling the Arizona Mirror on Monday that, though she and Stringer both represent Legislative District 1, it would be inappropriate for a senator to comment on a House matter. She said she’s waiting to see what action the House of Representatives takes, as well as what positions the Arizona Republican Party and Yavapai County Republican Party take.

Fann also said Stringer has faced other allegations, and that she would like to see the people who have made them step forward “so everyone can hear exactly what the stories are.”

“I’m not prepared to make a statement at this time because I am waiting to see what they are going to do over in the House and what they’re going to do on the state and county level first,” Fann said.
