SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - Spokane County Prosecutor Larry Haskell is a apologizing for the angst caused by his wife’s online comments about Muslims.

Haskell tells KHQ (https://bit.ly/18OvBh2 ) his wife’s comments do not reflect his views or the views of his office.

On a Facebook page called “Chicks On The Right,” Lesley Haskell posted a comment in January, writing “I do not trust Muzlims no matter what.”

One of those disturbed by the comments is a Muslim assistant U.S attorney in Spokane, Aine Ahmed. He called the comments “dangerous.”

Haskell says he understands the concerns and won’t allow his office to treat anybody any differently than anybody else. He says he doesn’t speak for his wife or police her online activity.
