KOKOMO, Ind. (WTHR) - A Kokomo councilman is resigning after controversy over old social media posts.

Earlier this week we told you about the comments from Greg Jones, posts dating back to 2015.

One of them insulted Muslim Americans, calling Islam a cult.

Another criticized rights for the LGBTQ community.

Jones was just sworn in earlier this month after winning the seat in November's election.

He told our partners at The Kokomo Tribune the best way he could continue serving the community was to step down immediately.

The Islamic and LGBTQ communities in Kokomo had previously said they were both open to meeting with Jones.
