OCALA, Fla. (AP) — A Florida school board member is under fire for Facebook posts saying men are being destroyed by "whores" and defending Bill Cosby, who was recently convicted of rape.

Angered residents demanded Marion County board member Nancy Stacy resign during Tuesday's meeting. That came a day after she posted, "Tired of WHORES destroying men! Set Bill Cosby free, says 'Mama Bear' with sons!"

The Ocala Star-Banner reports Stacy then wrote, "I do not consider a whore to be a victim of rapes. They go to a motel with a rich man with hopes of getting preg so they can rape him financially for 18 years."

Stacy later wrote her goal was "to suck evil venomous PROGRESSIVE liberals" into a trap and make them angry.

Stacy told reporters she would not resign.
