School Board Member Resigns Over Facebook Post

(Lexington, SC)  --  A school board member is learning a harsh lesson about posting comments on social media.  

Lexington One board member Grady Harmon resigned this week for what the district says was personal reasons, including his health and the health of his immediate family members.  

The resignation came a day after the district says it learned of posts Harmon made on Facebook about race that the district says were deeply offensive.  

Harmon tells the "Lexington Ledger" he has been on very powerful prescription pain medicine the last couple months, and he doesn't remember making any such comments.
