Albany’s ABC News affiliate reports:
Albany County Legislator George Langdon, who represents the 37th legislative district, has announced his resignation. Langdon’s resignation followed a Friday night rally calling on Langdon to resign.
He’d previously apologized for comments that offended many locals. “Apology not accepted!” chanted protestors at Friday’s demonstration.
Langdon was caught on video last week making homophobic comments during a politically conservative event organized by Bill Tryon, who was arrested shortly thereafter by the FBI for his alleged involvement in the January 6 Capitol riots.
Langdon, claiming that “everything God does is sustainable,” had suggested putting all gays on an island because “they’ll be gone after 40 years.”
