RALEIGH — North Carolina Republican lawmakers want Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper to withdraw his recent appointee to a state civil rights panel because of a past social media post comparing law enforcement officers to terrorists. Senate leader Phil Berger says all 29 GOP senators wrote Cooper on Tuesday asking him to take back last month’s appointment of Charlotte city councilwoman LaWana Mayfield to the state Human Relations Commission. They cited her tweet last March, when she wrote being black in the U.S. under President Donald Trump “has created homegrown terrorist (sic) wearing blue uniforms.” She refused to step back from the comment when critics called for her council resignation.
