St. Paul, MN (Learfield) - A Minnesota lawmaker is drawing criticism for several Facebook posts about Parkland students.

Republican Representative Mary Franson of Alexandria was accused this week of comparing the Florida high school students who led the March for Our Lives to the Hitler Youth.

Franson said yesterday that her posts have been misinterpreted but the Douglas County DFL chapter is calling for her to be removed from the House Subcommittee on Childcare Access and Affordability.

The controversial posts appeared Saturday night and have been deleted.
