Richard Mase Sr. told the Lebanon Daily News (http://bit.ly/TdfvUk) on Wednesday that he posted the comment on Oct. 3 during the first presidential debate between Obama and Republican nominee Mitt Romney
Several members of the Lebanon school board had called for his resignation.
Mase said he posted the remark "without thinking about it."
He wouldn't repeat the comment but said it was "very inflammatory and could be construed as racist." It has since been deleted.
Mase was elected last November to a four-year term. The board has 30 days to fill his seat and is taking applications for the voluntary position.
