Brian Wisniewski is a member of the Plum School Board. In the post that has now been removed from his Facebook page, Wisniewski posted: “Does it worry anybody that we have three devout Muslims in Congress that have unlimited access to our top secret government documents?”
KDKA News went to Wisniewski’s home Tuesday night to try to talk to him, but no one came to the door. We also emailed him asking for an interview, but got no response.MORE NEWS: Amendment Made To Pittsburgh's CROWN Act
In an effort to distance itself from Wisniewski’s Facebook post, the Plum School Superintendent sent the KDKA newsroom a short statement, saying, “We have been made aware of a re-posted comment on a Board member’s personal Facebook page – this District is not affiliated with this posting in any way. We vigorously disagree with and condemn the content of the post and we do so in the strongest possible terms.”
