Klemp was appointed to his seat after the previous member stepped down for health reasons. Others on the commission are asking for Klemp to resign before his last day, which is Jan. 15.
"I'm ashamed of one of our commissioners and what he has done. We shouldn't be labeled as Leavenworth County, the racist county. That's the way I feel we are being labeled," Commissioner Robert Holland told KSHB.
This is not the first time Klemp has made a controversial comment.
He praised Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee during a discussion of the county's 2018 holiday schedule, KHSB reported.
"Not everybody does them all because we have Robert E. Lee...Oh God, Robert E. Lee, wonderful part of history," Klemp said
He later called his own comment disappointing.
