A well-known Michigan lobbyist has resigned in the wake of recent remarks he made that triggered controversy.

The board of the Great Lakes Education Project--a school choice advocacy group--accepted Gary Naeyaert’s resignation Tuesday.

Last week, Naeyaert told a gathering of the Senate Education committee that he wanted to “shake” Michigan School Reform Officer Natasha Baker “like I like to shake my wife” for admitting her office was unable to hold persistently failing schools accountable.
