PRESCOTT, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- The Superintendent of the Prescott Unified School District said Rep. David Stringer's offensive comments are not limited to minorities and immigrants.
Over the years, Joe Howard said he's personally heard the embattled state lawmaker make disparaging remarks about people with disabilities and the poor.
"We just heard similar remarks over the years, whether it be racial or socioeconomic, I've heard remarks about poor people, of people with disabilities, or that type of thing," Howard said Thursday.
Howard, who has called for Stringer to step down, was uncomfortable repeating the specific slurs he claims Stringer used.
The Republican lawmaker has not responded to numerous requests for comment since a recording was published last week of him saying African Americans and other minoritiy groups, "don't blend in," and "always look different."
Since then, a year old racially charged article written by Stringer has emerged.
In a piece published in October 2017 in the Prescott eNews, which is co-owned by Stringer, he wrote about the changing demographics of the country.
"The United States may be the first nation in history to voluntarily surrender its traditional culture and national identity to other peoples. We are only beginning to experience the consequences."
Meanwhile, the list of people and organizations calling for Stringer to resign continues to grow.
The list includes Republican Gov. Doug Ducey, The Prescott City Council, and his hometown newspaper, the Prescott Daily Courier.
In an editorial titled, "It's time for Stringer to resign," the paper said, "David Stringer has lost credibility. Call this a vote of no confidence. His words are demeaning. This must stop."
